CONNECTING PROJECT TEAMS

Reserved Bus Lane/Robert Bourassa Blvd
Enlarging Robert-Bourassa Boulevard in Quebec, Canada, created a reserved
lane for express buses running between two main exits. This was achieved by
modifying the entrance and exit connectors to make room for the extra lane,
reinforcing and enlarging the soft shoulder to support heavier traffic, and creating
an exclusive lane connecting to the main highway to prevent traffic jams.
One challenge was to reduce the impact of construction on existing traffic
during the morning and evening rush hours. At night, only one lane could be
accessible; otherwise, two lanes had to be open at any time. Constructing
a temporary detour road minimized the impacts on traffic. InRoads helped
to design the most appropriate alignment, profile, sections, and volumes by
allowing designers to see the effect of changes on the entire system.
How To Ensure Consistent and Real-Time Information
Postmasburg, South Africa
The goal of this project was to reduce design time, ensure consistency, and
enable work sharing during project development for a new iron ore plant in the
Northern Cape, South Africa. The collaboration technology applied was based
on Microsoft SQL Server Replication, Microsoft Biz Talk Server, and Bentley
solutions that include Project Wise, PlantSpace, and Bentley Data Manager.
Bentley’s data-centric solutions ensured real-time collaboration among the
more than 200 project team members in disparate locations.
