This training lesson is an e-learning output of the ROADEX Project and has been developed for use by the ROADEX Partners. The lesson is not an approved technical standard or Regulation but rather a summary of the research reports from the ROADEX I, II, III and IV projects supplemented by various experiences and recommendations gathered by the author during numerous discussions with roads administrations and experts in the Northern Periphery area. The lesson also describes a range of well working practices and ‘rules of thumb’ that have been found to work well in projects involving roads on peat.
