§ Mr. Kenneth Carlisle
A press release to announce the launch of the "Good Roads Guide" in England was issued on 6 January 1993.
The "Good Roads Guide" is the name given to a collection of nine United Kingdom advice notes for inclusion in the new United Kingdom design manual for roads and bridges. This is a technical publication and copies are not normally deposited in the Library. A limited number of specially bound editions were produced for the press release. These are no longer available.
The nine United Kingdom advice notes will be available for sale to the general public at the end of the month.
