Geometric Road Design



The participants in this Road Geometric Design training course will receive a thorough introduction to road design as well as the confidence to handle this kind of work once they return to the workplace. Participants who are unfamiliar with the subject or those who have practical expertise but lack academic training in the field will find it useful.

Course Objectives:

At the end of this course the participants will be able to: 

  • Recognize the applications of Horizontal and Vertical Alignment and Road Planning and Design principles.
  • Recognize the significance of sustainable urban transport planning.
  • Recognize the importance of road geometric design for safe roads
  • Road Safety Inspection and Base Road Safety Audit (RSA) (RSI)
  • Recognize the opportunities presented by the newest ITS design trends for roads.
  • Create traffic simulations for the coordination of traffic signs and signals.
  • Prepare the project for the implementation of ITS, sustainability, upkeep, and basic road geometric design.
