  • Flexible Road Construction Method Process Step by Step

     · Sub-grade preparation works involve Earthwork is one of the major works involved in road construction. It involves the removal of top layer of soil vegetation.Road area is prepared for the finished formation level. This is usually done using a manually and mechanically like tractor shovel grader etc. Below the formation level the soil is known as the subgrade.
