Summary: The Geometric Design of Roads Handbook is aimed at the practitioner and also students at under- and post-graduate levels. It addresses the design of the visible elements of the road - its horizontal and vertical alignments, the cross-section, intersections and interchanges. The author's main intention is to update knowledge of the art and science of geometric design by discussing in depth the paradigm shifts that have taken place in the field since 1998, and their impacts on the design process. Importantly, the book also addressed the underpinning disciplines of statistics, traffic flow theory, economic and utility analysis, systems analysis, hydraulics and drainage, capacity analysis, coordinate calculation and environmental issues.
