      Highway engineering is an engineering discipline branching from civil engineering that involves the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of roads, bridges, and tunnels to ensure safe and effective transportation of people and goods. Highway engineering became prominent towards the latter half of the 20th Century after World War :// Tunneling and underground transport: future developments in technology, economics, and policy: papers prepared for the conference held by the Macro-Engineering Research Group and the Center for Advanced Engineering Study of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in cooperation with Stone and Webster Engineering Corporation, Arthur D. Little, Inc., and the American Society for Macro

      Highways serve as the lifeline of a developing nation. Even in the developed nations, highways play an important role in connecting cities and establishing an industrial link between two or more places. Highway construction and engineering is comprised of planning, designing, and executing. Construction of highway does not mean construction of roads only, but it includes various aspects like /highway-construction-and-engineering.   Call for Book Chapters Book Title: Deep Learning and Big Data for Intelligent Transportation: Enabling Technologies and Future Trends Published by Springer, Studies in Computational Intelligence series in Year Deep learning and big data are very dynamic, grooming and important research topics of today’s ?eventid=
