INNOVATION IN ROADS
Kt 75 section of pajulahti
located about 50 kilometers from Kuopio, Finland, the Kt 75 Section of pajulahti
carries heavy truck traffic for the agriculture and forest-based sectors. It is also
a regional access route for the Tahkovuori recreation area. This $4.38 million
project expanded transportation capacity and resolved traffic safety problems.
Destia oy designed the interchange, trunk road, and light traffic underpass.
creation of roadway corridors using Inroads accelerated design and facilitated
communication with the client and community. Based on the 3D model,
visualizations were used to make decisions about modifications that improved
alignments and sight distances. The visuals also enabled local residents to have
a clear understanding of the design concept. The project was completed early
and within budget.

Al-Bidda roundabout Upgrade project
kuwait City, kuwait
The $47 million upgrade of the Al-Bidda roundabout on Kuwait city’s coast
road was commissioned by Kuwait’s ministry of public Works to improve
performance at both existing and expected traffic volumes. egis India
consulting engineers teamed with local partner mazen Al-Sane engineering
consultant to provide conceptual and final design of the improvements.
The work involved construction of a grade-separated interchange over the
existing roundabout in order to retain the roundabout’s size and shape. The
project posed challenges related to right-of-ways, utilities, provisions for future
metro, access to nearby localities, and sight distances for a design speed of
80 kilometers per hour. Using mXroAD saved considerable time, enabling one
design engineer and one cAD technician to complete the job.
