In developing and transition economies, 60 to 80 percent of all passenger and freight transport moves by road-the main form of access for most rural communities. Yet most of the 11 million kilometers of roads in these economies are badly maintained and poorly managed. This paper discusses one of the most effective ways to promote sound policies for managing and financing road networks--commercialization. It discusses the emerging central concept of bringing roads into the marketplace, putting them on a fee-for-service basis, and managing them like a business.

Trevor Holroyd maintains that a substantial part of an engineer's training relates solely to the academic and the result is that engineers may be greatly disadvantaged in the commercial world. In his book, Site management for engineers, he presents, in concise and clear terms, the practices which an engineer must understand to become competitive commercially. The book covers good site practice and management techniques, programmes, tenders, construction methods, all types of resource procurement, health and safety, planing systems and people skills. It draws on examples from the author's extensive experience of site supervision and provides engineers with a practical working guide.
