Currently there is no single textbook that addresses the fundamental geometric concepts of urban and rural road design. Traffic behavior has significantly changed over the last two decades and warrants newer methods for road design. Unlike the advances made in building, ship and aircraft design, road design is still carried out in a traditional way which is more than fifty years old. Starting from the traditional design process this book introduces a 3-dimensional geometric design process of urban and rural road design. It will prove to be a valuable textbook for undergraduate and graduate university students as well as road planning and design practitioners.

Wolfgang KUHN is a professor of transportation at the University of Leipzig, Germany, where his research has been in the field of road design, especially the application of modern design techniques to that field.Review:
"Prof. Kuhn has written a book on the design of roads with a unique and long awaited content that despite some limited deficiencies in English terminology and updated reference on the German Design Guide will be highly appreciated by the international highway engineering community and academia and therefore the book should find a place in the bookshelf of every modern and prominient highway design professional." --Advances in Transportation Studies, an International Journal, Section B 30 (2013)
