The Author has presented an informative paper outlining the numerous problems of soil mechanics in road engineering in South Africa. He states that all the problems stress the need for more detailed study of the soils, that it is apparent that climatic regions are a useful indicator to the formation of a soil, and that research may produce simple chemical and petrographical tests to supplement the standard physical tests now used.
