In this unit, you will be introduced to the design of roads, pavements, and associated documentation. You will also be introduced to traffic analysis, safety, efficiency, environmental and cultural issues, and the sustainability of road and pavement design. You will analyse traffic survey data and interpret survey results, applying them to the analysis of traffic flows and estimation of system capacity. You will also apply design codes and manuals to common design problems involving the geometric design of roads, road drainage, intersection design, and pavement design and rehabilitation. You will learn to work with the most common software in road and pavement design to prepare plans, design alignments, compile specifications, design pavement, and estimate quantities and costs.
