Without the services of a road worker, we will have no roads to drive on! Oh yes! They are that important because not only do they survey and find out if a piece of land is suitable for road building but are instrumental in building that road.

Road workers ensure that all material and equipment being used in a road construction project conform to standards. Apart from building roads, they are also expected to manage the routine maintenance of roads which may include plowing, patching and even repairing road signs.
