Alignment Surveys

Verticality & Horizontal Alignment Surveys

Alignment surveys: Safety of the users is the paradigm priority of any infrastructure activity and ensuring this requires highly precise planning. Highways, Railroads, tunnels or any mass transit systems around the world and even high-rise constructions require accurate alignment centerlines to be marked as a key building block to ensure design requirements like tangents, turning radius & transition curves are not only satisfactorily marked but are also done quickly & accurately. Understanding, Analyzing and realigning the terrain also decreases the wear and tear thus minimizing the maintenance costs.

Alignment Surveys

At Precision Surveys, we have processed several miles of both horizontal & vertical alignments for roadways, railways & skyscrapers.

Alignment Surveys for Highways and Railways

When it comes to designing and constructing highways and railways, one of the most important factors to consider is the alignment of the infrastructure. Alignment surveys are used to determine the precise location of the highway or railway, as well as any potential obstacles or challenges that may arise during construction.

highway alignment surveys are used to determine the exact location of the road, as well as any potential obstacles or challenges that may arise during construction. This includes determining the location of any existing infrastructure, such as utilities or other roads, as well as identifying any natural features that may impact the construction of the highway. The survey will also determine the elevation of the roadway, as well as any potential drainage issues that may need to be addressed.

Railway alignment surveys are similar to highway alignment surveys, but with a focus on the railway infrastructure. The survey will determine the exact location of the railway, as well as any potential obstacles or challenges that may arise during construction. This includes determining the location of any existing infrastructure, such as utilities or other railways, as well as identifying any natural features that may impact the construction of the railway. The survey will also determine the elevation of the railway, as well as any potential drainage issues that may need to be addressed.

Both roadway and railway alignment surveys are typically conducted using a combination of surveying equipment, such as total stations and GPS, as well as aerial imagery and other data sources. The survey data is then analyzed and used to create detailed maps and plans that are used during the construction process.

In conclusion, alignment surveys are an essential part of the design and construction process for roadways and railways. They provide crucial information that is used to ensure the infrastructure is built in the right location, with the right elevation and with minimal disruptions to existing infrastructure. With the help of technology and advanced equipment, the survey data is analyzed and used to create detailed maps and plans that guide the construction process.
