Series of publications on Transport Infrastructure. Topic: HIGHWAY INFRASTRUCTURE ENGINEERING.
The Brazilian highway system is doubtedly the main logistic transportation mode of passengers and loads nowadays inside the country!
Taking up the publications about TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE, we are going to talk about the HIGHWAY INFRASTRUCTURE in this week topic.
The HIGHWAY INFRASTRUCTURE is the TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE ENGINEERING area that addresses the necessary disciplines for design, planning, operation and construction of ROADS and URBAN WAYS. The Brazilian highway system is doubtedly the main logistic transport mode of passengers and loads nowadays inside the country and the one that demands more projects and works due to its extension and complexity. The needs of that system encompass from construction of new highways to the expansion, duplication and maintenance of existing systems. In this context, the INFRASTRUCTURE ENGINEER performs an important role to ensure a safe tracing and adequate maintenance, reducing this transportation system cost in a network with more than 1.5 million kilometers of unpaved roads and highways.
The HIGHWAY INFRASTRUCTURE projects are developed taking into account the standards and regulations of DNIT, DER and ANTT. Besides of global planning and design guidelines, the HIGHWAY AND URBAN INFRASTRUCTURE also depends on the municipal regulations of each state and the transportation dynamics of cities and regions.
Our group develops studies HIGHWAY INFRASTRUCTURE projects on planning, earthworks, paving, drainage, horizontal and vertical signaling, besides of having specialized partners to develop complementary disciplines such as electrical, electronics, hydraulics, architecture and environment. On the next publication we will talk about RAILWAY INFRASTRUCTURE!
See you next publication!
