INNOVATION IN ROADS
Versova – Bandra sea link project
rI TeS examined various options for reducing congestion on the existing route
between Versova and Bandra in the metropolitan area of mumbai, India. The
proposed 41. 2 billion Inr Versova-Bandra Sea link is a dual four-lane access-controlled carriageway with connectors at two locations and integration with
the Bandra―Worli Sea link at Bandra.
Using mXroAD allowed the project team to generate various alternative
design options in a short period of time. The software saved approximately
50 man-days while developing options and incorporating frequent changes to
meet client requirements. The accepted option for Versova-Bandra Sea link is a
10.1-kilometer main sea link and 3. 8 kilometers of connectors.

nH40 re-engineering designs
national Highway 40 from Jorabat to Shillong is a lifeline to India’s
northeastern states. To improve capacity and safety, the national Highway
Authority upgraded the 31.7-kilometer, two-lane road to a dual two-lane
controlled access tollway. Scott Wilson India developed detailed engineering
designs, including highway alignment to a design speed of 50 kilometers per
hour, nine bridges, 187 culverts, and one overpass.
Using mXroAD to design, visualize, and refine the alignment enabled
consideration of multiple alternatives to avoid deep valleys and hillocks, and
retain existing two-lane bridges in good condition. mXroAD also ensured
design updates were reflected in final drawings and deliverables. The 3D
capabilities reduced design cycle time by 40 percent. collaboration through
project Wise reduced errors, which saved 20 percent in construction costs.
