Concrete in Road Construction - Summarised Report of the Yorkshire Branch Meeting Held at Leeds on March 14th, 1929

The paper, which has already been published, was illustrated with a pressure distribution diagram (printed with the paper) and a number of excellent concrete specimens, photographs of which, now available, are shown here. During the discussion it was urged that a perfect concrete or reinforced concrete road hnd not yet been found, but it was allowed that rapid progress was being made. Frequently, with regard to foundations and subsidence, there was the question of proper tipping of embankments. Made ground should be filled in definite layers and properly consolidated.
