Abstract

As outlined in Section A2, there are several factors that determine the selection of route corridors and the design of the alignment within them. These include road network planning and traffic forecasts, construction and maintenance costs and engineering, socio-economic, environmental and political considerations. The following discussion focuses on route corridor and alignment design in relation to topography and geometric standards, and describes how these considerations interface with those of slope stability and ground conditions.
