Low volume roads in the Czech Republic are roads with lower traffic volume that primarily include forest and field roads, and they are an integral part of the Czech transport network. When building road pavements, we can use processes for surveying, designing, building and inspecting road constructions included in national and international, particularly European, standards. In addition, the roads are evaluated in terms of their environmental impacts, in order to maintain the quality of the

The decisions have impacts on the operation of roads and lead to other measures and additional costs of repairs and reconstructions. The article summarizes the authors' research results from constructions of low volume road pavements and contains evaluations of laboratory and in situ material tests (soils, layers) of installed road pavements as well as evaluations of modelled laboratory and long-term monitored in situ structures.
