Professional Engineering Technologist Renier Bosch explains that "Civil Designer's technical ability was tested with this project for Mangaung Metro Municipality. It consists of approximately 50km of roads, 42km of sewer reticulation, 48km of water reticulation and 50km of stormwater reticulation all within a single design file/project.

Integration between the various services was quick and easy with the software which made the design phase very efficient. The bulk earthworks aspect of the project has already commenced and the first batch of civil contracts will begin in the next couple of months." Renier Bosch, Pro-Plan Consulting Engineers (Pty)


Feature Focus - Superfast Junctions Design Using Road Strings

The new Road Strings Junction wizards allow for the very quick and easy design (and editing) of roads: These can be saved to libraries for instant re-use in existing or future projects.

Road Strings

If you've not already done so, make sure to have a look at this YouTube video which demonstrates a road widening with intersection design completed in a matter of minutes. To get to grips with the new Roads Strings tools we suggest that you contact us about the new Roads design course which includes this latest functionality.
