Road - Road Design

Calculates quantities including stripping of topsoil, cut and fill (with centroid options for curves) by tagging chainages, kerb and path lengths, area of seal, and road base, area of trim and consolidation.

Haulage quantities can be plotted on long sections or printed out in a construction table.

The templates are very flexible with multiple vertical alignments (max 9). Templates can be stored to a library. Typical offsets can interact from survey horizontal alignments thus adjusting road widths (eg kerb offsets parking bays).

Survey Data is transferred with Road Start and End Chainages of I.P and Typical automatically set from survey



Quantities and plots of cross sections can be produced from two surfaces. The survey code of point (or string) is carried across from the model to the offset code. The design on screen with interactive graphics creates and moves I.P. on vertical alignments simultaneously, displaying new design cross sections (with pipe design) and contours in the P.V. window showing location on the plan with Low Points, quantities and sight distance. Car vertical clearance can be plotted on screen.

The P.V. window is an active survey window that can be used in road and pipe to aid design. It can transport levels to or from the model.

Road design and kerb returns can be dumped into the natural surface model to produce a finished model. With an option to increase the intensity of sections by using the NS model as the base model to generate a section .Option to import survey chainages and levels directly into IP data.

An Error report on data and last design is available.

Pipe/Sewer design or services (water, power etc) data can be plotted on long sections and cross sections and labelled.
