CivilCAD 2016-Roads

Roads Construction, Design and Earthworks Calculations

CivilCAD 2016-Roads allows roads planning and design, earthworks design and calculation, and all inclusive surveying and treatment of upper and underground infrastructure. The software combines powerful design options, accurate and high-speed results, and supreme usability setting new standards for roads engineers worldwide.

Roads contractors, earthworks and land development contractors which are using the software, acknowledge CivilCAD 2016-Roads as their primary tool for getting the job done.
