CONTROL OF HORIZONTAL ROAD ALIGNMENT

KONTROLL AV VAEGLINJENS LAEGE I PLAN

This is a study of the horizontal geometric differences between a road line in the final design stage, the same line staked out on the ground by conventional field methods and the line actually constructed. The investigation was made on a 3 km average-standard road project. The maximum difference between the roadline designed and the one constructed was found to be 2,9 M laterally and 3,1 M longitudinally. The possible consequences of such divergencies have been discussed from different points of view, such as geotechnical, constructional and juridical. It is concluded that the differences found should be minimized or possibly eliminated by setting out the roadline from a traverse along the line, the setting-out data being calculated by computer, a procedure which is already in current practice in most high-class road projects. /TRRL/
