Abstract: This report considers theamount of energy consumed to build new roads (some 1800) each year. It was found that the total energy used in road construction amounts to between 1 and 2% of energy consumed by road transport. At that level it is unlikely that any possible changes in methods of road construction could lead to significant energy savings.
