In presenting a broad review of motorway foundation problems, the paper deals not only with bridges and other structural works but also with embankment and carriageway construction. The site investigation requirements are indicated and the design processes outlined. Reference is made to mining and the special difficulties encountered where motorways are located through the coalfields.

Illustrations of design and construction problems are given from various motorways in England and Wales.
