AESTHETICS AND INTERNAL ALIGNMENT OF FREEWAYS IN RURAL AREAS

AESTHETICS ARE MAXIMIZED IN REGARD TO FREEWAY ALIGNMENT WITHIN THE CONSTRAINTS OF SAFETY AND COST. AESTHETIC QUALITIES ARE NOT SET UP AS MEASURABLE CRITERIA AS SUCH. AN ATTEMPT IS MADE TO SUMMARIZE MAIN PRINCIPLES WHICH CAN BE APPLIED UNDER VARIOUS CONDITIONS AS GUIDING FACTORS. THE VIEW OF THE ROAD FROM THE DRIVER'S EYE, OR THE INTERNAL ASPECT IS COVERED. TWO MAIN PRINCIPLES APPEAR TO BE PREVALENT IN THE ANALYSIS OF THREE-DIMENSIONAL ALIGNMENT: ONE DEALS WITH THE BASIC GEOMETRIC ELEMENT AND THE OTHER WITH THE PSYCHOLOGICAL ASPECTS. /CGRA/
