Summary

Students will get acquainted with the roads sorting and with the categories types of roads and urban roads, with tracing principles (directional and height solutions) and with possibilities of width arrangement. The design principles of the ground solids and pavement structures and principles of drainage will be presented. Attention will also be paid to the use of security features and the possibility to calm urban roads. The course will also include pedestrian and bicycle transport and construction for transport at rest (parking, garages).
