A revolutionary software on its own, the Road Estimator is a great tool for road creation and quantity management estimates. This robust computer application can take care of all your section creation and quantity calculation. The software is so intuitive, it can generate roads and cross sections on its own from survey data, down to the last detail of earthwork and quantity.

Apart from road cross section calculation, the Road Estimator software can generate data for new roads, widen or strengthen existing roads, in any setting - urban, rural, mountains, highways.

Highlights of Road Estimator

New Roads

You're a road contractor and you gotta build roads! The Road Estimator is your best friend in this matter. Whether you are building new roads, single-lane, multi-lane, highways, service roads or rural roads - you will be able to get all kinds of estimation data from this exciting software. It can quantify roads with or without pavement, consisting of multiple layers, without any limitation of materials or the number of layers.

Widening of roads

Existing roads need to be widened as the load on them increases with time. The technical challenges of widening a road, especially in populated areas, can easily be overcome when you have the nifty Road Estimator by your side. Be it any kind of work - road repair, rebuild, soil replacement, cross-sectional changes, super elevation - just feed the survey data into the Road Estimator and watch the magic!

Strengthening of roads

Road is old and needs to be strengthened? No worries, feed the data into Road Estimator and it will automatically detect the issues with the existing road. The software will detect various road overlay conditions, and then compute the possible profile correction courses that will be highly beneficial for the existing road.

Railways (new!)

Not only roads, but the Road Estimator software can be used in making railways as well! Over the last few years, the demands of new rail network construction and upgradation of existing rail networks has gone through the roof.
