4 Concept of Ancient Roads (5000 years ago) Definition: “ Paths treaded by animals and human beings” Pavement Structure:  Stone –paved roads made of one or two rows of slabs 50 mm thick in central portion….,

5 Roman Roads Types of Roman Roads  Ordinary roman roads  Important Roman roads  Built in straight line regardless of gradient  Excavated parallel trenches 40-ft apart for longitudinal drainage  Foundation raised 3-ft above ground level  Embankment covered with sand or mortar

6 CROSS-SECTION (Ordinary Roman Roads) 1)Foundation layer (10-24inch),composed of large stones 2)Firm base 9-in thick made of broken stones,pebbles, cement and sand 3)Nucleus layer about 12-in thick using concrete made from gravel and coarse sand 4)Wearing surface of large stone slabs at least 6- in deep 5)Total thickness varied from 3ft to 6ft

7 Ordinary Roman roads

8  Bottom coarse(25-40cm) made of large size broken stones in lime mortar  Base coarse(25-40cm) made with smaller broken stones in lime mortar  Wearing coarse(10-15cm) of dressed large stone blocks/slabs set in lime mortar  Total thickness varied 0.75 to 1.20 m  Heavily crowned central carriage way 15ft wide(total width 35ft) CROSS-SECTION (Important Roman Roads)
