  • Processing Geometric design with complete set of site setting-out information
  • Producing best formatted construction drawings for PLAN, PROFILE, Cross Sections
  • Produces Estimation of Quantities,
  • Analysis of Item Unit Rates,
  • Flexible pavement design as per IRC SP 20, SP 72, AASHTO etc.,
  • Rigid Concrete Pavement design
  • Pavement Overlay design
  • Layered System Analysis for Pavement improvement using Geotextiles, Fiber Glass reinforcements etc.
  • Bituminous Mix Design
  • Hydrological design of road Drainage,
  • Multi-level Grade separated Interchanges etc.
  • Detailed and well formatted Design Reports and Drawings.
  • Produces LANDXML output for 3D Visualization Drive Through by software UC/winRoad.

Applications for Construction

  • Processing Cross Sections Survey by Auto Level,
  • Bill of Quantities for Running Account Billing
  • Chainage wise Cross Section Drawings,
  • Analysis for Unit Item Rates,
  • Generating Site Setting out details with desired modifications as and when required,
  • Preparation of As built Drawings
  • Alignment Control for Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM),
  • String Tables with Elevations at Normal Cross fall & Super elevated sections for construction by advanced motor grader and Paver.

Special Points on Technical Specifications

  • Model Strings may take up to 20, 000 Strings.
  • Conceptualization of Route Alignment on Aerial Photograph / Satellite Imagery.
  • Co-ordinate transformation from Long-Lat to East-North and the reverse
  • Low Cost Rural Road design using IRC SP 19, SP 20 & SP 72.
  • Design and estimating of Rural Roads with “No Land Acquisition” criterion
  • Optimized road profile design for Exact Quantity of Pavement, Profile correction & Overlay.
  • Design of Hill Roads with Sharp bends and variety of design conditions.
  • Expressway design with Speed higher than 100 KPH following AASHTO.
  • Hydrological design of Highway Drainage.
  • Pavement design & Cost Estimation with Analysis for Unit Item Rates.
  • Asphalt Concrete Mix Design & Quality Control.
  • Auto level survey for Cross Sections and Bill of Quantities.
  • Extended ground in Cross Section drawing to show full Survey Corridor.
  • Built-in CAD engine for viewing and editing drawings compatible to AutoCAD.
  • DXF Plan, Profile & Cross Section Drawings compatible to all CAD software.
  • Long Section Drawing with Alignment & Super Elevation details, even in Pieces.
  • Plan drawings in sheet wise pieces by Sheet Layout.
  • Interactive design for a length of 100 Km in one go (in True Sense).
  • Control on Shifting of Alignment for Tunnel Centre Line.
  • Design interchangeability with other popular Road design software.
