Highway Engineering is an engineering discipline branching from civil engineering that involves the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of roads, bridges, and tunnels to ensure safe and effective transportation of people and goods.
Highway planning involves the estimation of current and future traffic volumes on a road network. Highway Engineers strive to predict and analyse all possible civil impacts of highway systems. Some considerations are the adverse effects on the environment, such as noise pollution, air pollution, water pollution, and other ecological impacts.

About Hong Kong & Asia
Asia is a great and diverse region in which to work. The construction industry varies widely between countries and has many different historical influences still affecting the way each operates.
With a mix of international and local construction industry practices within each country, the relative cost and scarcity of land creates the backdrop of what kinds of building and civil engineering construction projects are built to what standard and budget.
In Hong Kong the construction of major school, hospital and residential developments are ongoing alongside a massive MTR railway construction programme and a number of major road and bridge projects.
Singapore has a thriving rail, civil engineering and building sector, Macau has a focus on gaming and hospitality while other countries in Asia have their own dynamics.
Civil Engineers, Project Managers and Quantity Surveyors with either Cantonese or Mandarin language skills or high value mega project experience are always in demand for construction jobs in Asia.
