ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the issue of road defects, defects of components and materials used on roundabouts, which are located close to industrial zones. These defects are
mostly caused by heavy freight vehicle crossing. Defects of the roundabouts may arise solely due to improper geometry of the crossroad itself, but also by selecting building materials inappropriately due to the nature of the transport. The article presents specific examples of roundabouts, described using this issue. In conclusion, there are recommended materials and possible solutions of this problem at the end of the article.

Keywords: Vehicles, industrial zones, components, material, roundabouts
