The present case study deals with development ofexisting roads to master plan roads. The roads from NH-5junction to kommadi village, NH-5 to Navodhaya School, arelocated in Visakhapatnam city in India. Particularly these areasare densely populated and occupied with housing units, schoolsand commercial buildings. As these roads could not meet thepresent & and future demand, new road proposals was putforward by Visakhapatnam development authority (VUDA) towiden the existing road to master plan road. The present conditionof the road is in deteriorated state which is sacrificed and newpavement design is proposed according to IRC-37:2001recommendations. The studies involves collection of details suchas road width, gradient, deflection angle, length of curve andradius of curve and design them to the prescribed standards ofIRC code. The curve parameters have been measured usingtheodolite by traversing along center line of the curve.
