Project Brief You are an engineer working for a highway consultancy who has been commissioned by a Highway Authority to identify and design a connection route between Location A and Location B in the United Kingdom. (State clearly the Coordinates of A and B at the outset of your project). You have to determine a preliminary alignment for a two-lane road connecting Location A and Location B. You should decide on: 1. The coordinates of Location A and Location B on a map/plan 2. The appropriate design speed 3. The maximum and minimum grade gradient 4. The maximum super-elevation and any other design criteria deemed appropriate 5. word count should be 3500 words minimum Your task is to produce a feasibility study report on the project. Your feasibility study should follow the guidelines in the Design Manuals for Roads and Bridges (DMRB). The design documents can be found from the weblink www.standardsforhighways.co.uk.
