Jammu & Kashmir State power Development corporation is building a
1,200-megawatt hydroelectric plant to augment power for the states of Jammu
and Kashmir, India. l&T – ramboll consulting engineers subcontracted to
design a 15-kilometer access road and 3-kilometer temporary road. Heavy slope
protection was required along the proposed alignment due to sloping terrain
and frequent landslides.
The project team finalized the alignment based on preliminary surveys. existing
ground levels were captured in chainage and offset format for projecting slope
variations. This data was imported into mXroAD using the tooltip option, which
reduced import time by 30 percent. cross sections were developed according to
actual site conditions and presented to the client for assessment.
The $162 million Sheikh Khalifa Interchange will improve connectivity
between the Khalifa port and the Dubai and Abu Dhabi emirates. The
23-kilometer interchange includes three overpasses and a roundabout.
larsen & Toubro ecc’s Infrastructure operating company was retained to
check the safety of the proposed loop and ramp alignments as well as verify
compliance with codal standards.

mXroAD was used to provide cross sections for the ramp and loop section
and check against codal provisions. long section details were provided for
the alignment line, carriageway edge strings, and shoulder strings (any string
present in the model). With just a few clicks, mXroAD provided setting-out
information for the survey team. The model enabled analysis of visibility and
ensured safety goals were achieved at every point.
