National Highway 40 from Jorabat to Shillong is a lifeline to India’s
northeastern states. To improve capacity and safety, the National Highway
Authority upgraded the 31.7-kilometer, two-lane road to a dual two-lane
controlled access tollway. Scott Wilson India developed detailed engineering
designs, including highway alignment to a design speed of 50 kilometers per
hour, nine bridges, 187 culverts, and one overpass.
Using MXROAD to design, visualize, and refine the alignment enabled
consideration of multiple alternatives to avoid deep valleys and hillocks, and
retain existing two-lane bridges in good condition. MXROAD also ensured
design updates were reflected in final drawings and deliverables. The 3D
capabilities reduced design cycle time by 40 percent. Collaboration through
Project Wise reduced errors, which saved 20 percent in construction costs.

The Brescia-Bergamo-Milan Motorway Connection is the new toll highway
linking the city of Brescia with Milan. Its purpose is to ease congestion on the
current road and motorway network along the corridor. The USD 2 billion project
provides for the completion of the new motorway with three lanes in each
direction, new local roads, and the renovation of existing roads.
The company selected Project Wise to manage all project documentation.
The benefits include time savings in communication, controlled access to
design and procedure documents, and standardization of drawings and texts.
The centralized server in Brescia houses all documentation for the final and
executive plans – 60,000 technical drawings in editable and PDF format – which
has been drawn up by external design units located throughout Italy.
