paving
Explanation:
"carpeta de rodado" es una forma elegante de decir "pavimento".

Por eso yo recomiendo traducir así: "...y colocación de carpeta de rodado" = "...and paving" simplemente, o también: "...and laying pavement"

La definición en inglés: pav·ing (pvng) n. The act or technique of laying pavement.

laying pavement = colocar o installar pavimento

Saludos...

neutral  Patricia Lutteral: The original meaning has vanished; we're asked for translation, not recreation. And "carpeta de rodado" is the pavement; for cars to move, not to park.
