Geometric Road Design



This Geometric Road Design training program teaches the principles and techniques of designing road alignments and cross-sections. It includes instruction on horizontal and vertical alignment, cross-sectional elements, and safety considerations. Participants gain practical skills to create road designs that meet regulatory standards and project needs.

Program Objectives:

At the end of this program 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.
