The determination and design of road location is a comprehensive and demanding task. It requires team work and a range of different expertise for the most cost effective and environmentally satisfactory solution to be found. The use of computers and GIS (Geographical Information Systems) enables the designer(s) to consider different road aspects in their design at the same time rather than sequentially. The result can be interpreted as an automated road location and design procedure.
