Let’s look through the process of road construction in any wild area. For example, we can take forest. To lay the road in such a section, it should be cleaned from trees first of all. Certainly, it will influence the wild nature of this area. Depending on the dimensions of the road and all its features natural damage is usually calculated. Laws of many countries make provisions for such cases. It should be either paid an appointed sum of money for each tree or transplanted a new forest area, which is equal to the damaged one.

After that the ground is prepared for laying asphalt. Depending on the kind of future road, climate conditions and other factors, the number of layers for the road is defined. There are several types of asphalt equipment used for various climate zones.

All in all, many companies try to use eco-friendly road constructions schemes today. So, western countries are already close to saving as many gifts of nature as we have for now.
