This article considers the possibility that Stonehenge was constructed as a roofed temple.

Current highway bridge designs in the UK tend to favour either composite steel girders with a precast or in situ concrete deck for long spans, or precast concrete beams with an in situ concrete deck for spans of less than 40m. This article considers temporary works, in particular the use of temporary supports, to precast concrete bridge beams during deck construction.
