The only serious alternatives to macadam in rural road construction were various uses of timber. 6a) was built of logs placed transverse to the direction of travel. The technique had been in use for millennia. It was demanding of timber, uneven and often short-lived. Nevertheless, the practice was widespread in forested regions. The corduroy surface was improved somewhat by adding sand or longitudinal running planks to the surface of the logs. One advantage of the technique in soft ground was that as the timbers settled more were stacked on top.

They produced a surface that was usually uneven and slippery. Setts were used to produce a better surface than the cobblestones. Belgian granite became famous for this purpose but many port cities had plentiful sett supplies based on discarded ships’ ballast. Concrete blocks were used in Edinburgh in 1866. None of these segmental block methods had much inherent strength and commonly resulted in uneven and slippery History of Roads 33 surfaces. They were particularly slippery and noisy under the action of iron-shod hooves and wheels.

The surface slipperiness problem was overcome in manufactured asphalt by following the technique used for mastic and wood blocks in which a covering of coarse sand or grit was incorporated into the still-sticky asphalt surface. Manufactured asphalt could thus provide a level surface with adequate skid resistance — it was just what was needed for the motor vehicle and its pneumatic tyres. In 1887 Richardson succeeded de Smedt as Inspector of Pavements in Washington DC. His 1905 book probably contains the world’s first reliable specification for manufactured asphalt.
