Document Type: Journal Paper


This paper explains methods of using line equations in the computations for highway design and layout based on plane coordinates and demonstrates self-hecking computations. Only basic mathematics are involved. It is believed that the use of the methods as demonstrated will avoid errors and save engineering time in design and layout.
