INNOVATION IN ROADS
The intersection of roads to the city of Baku, the Absheron peninsula, and the
Heydar Aliyev international airport in Azerbaijan was a traffic bottleneck.
Compounding the problem was the Pazaar, which had 5,000 selling stalls at the
airport entrance, and the proximity of airport signal towers. The new airport
interchange will shorten airport commute time by 25 minutes.
The project team used MicroStation, InRoads, and Bentley Descartes to
complete the project in the shortest possible time. The software enabled the
team to find a design solution that would eliminate congestion and support
economic development. MicroStation enabled the team to create a 3D
presentation and animation for reviewers.
RITES Ltd. (Highways)
Detailed Project Report for NH 210
Tamil Nadu, India
The National Highway Authority of India initiated the NH 210 rehabilitation and
improvement program to sustain economic growth in southeastern Tamil Nadu
by reducing travel time and distance between Trichy and Rameshwaram. The
$161 million upgrades will shorten the drive by nearly 60 kilometers. RI TES
performed detailed highway design, expanding existing two-lane sections to
four-lane divided highways.
MXROAD was used extensively for designing junctions and interchanges, and
preparing tender drawings, quantity calculations, reports, and documentation.
The software was extremely beneficial for both new construction sections and
areas requiring resurfacing and reconstruction. Incorporating these products
into the workflows limited design responsibility to only two people.
