HighRoad is a software package that allows you design roads as you always have - graphically. It makes use of the proven graphical interface of modern operating systems so you can use the software immediately without learning complicated commands or special formulae. You don't need to be a computer expert to use HighRoad - its icons and graphics make it intuitive and fast to use.
Road design is quick and interactive with HighRoad. Even complex design elements such as intersections and cul-de-sacs are automatically created for you. HighRoad's proven "embedded intelligence" ensures that these elements remain synchronised as you make adjustments to your design. While it has a great amount of intelligence built in, HighRoad also provides you with the flexibility to override its decisions when necessary.
The elegant interface of HighRoad means that it can be used for a variety of civil engineering tasks. As well as road design for subdivisions, highway planning, highway relocation, haul roads, and widenings, it has also been used for drainage channels, pipelines, retention basins, conveyor routes, open cut mines, race courses, airport runways, and so on.
Drawing layout and production is simplified by the drawing manager and tracking of construction projects streamlined by the ability to calculate earthworks for progress claims. Building pad design broadens the capability of HighRoad without compromising its ease of use.
HighRoad's intelligent object design automatically maintains complex relationships in a network of intersecting roads. Each road automatically adjusts itself to match changes in other roads that it connects to. This extends not only to the obvious plan relationship but also the vertical grading of the roads, how they interconnect and the interaction between cut and fill batter slopes in an intersection.
