RE: Require a little help on a project

Hi Avi,
 
Width of lanes, size of vehicles, number of lanes, expected size of vehicles passing (motor cycle passing truck, trucks passing trucks), number of side streets, vehicle turning circles for properties and side streets, number of pedestrains, location of schools and retirement homes, line of sight, length of road (long straight rural roads not good, so have deliberate dips and bends in them), bicycle lanes and bicylce usage, industry and type of vehicles coming and going from roads, materials carried (mud from tires, and cement and other materials falling/flying from trucks).
 
Are just a few parameters. Good references are Metric Data Handbook and Transport SA design guide for urban and rural roads.
 

Regards
