Road Design

We offer a complete road design service from minor rural improvements to major urban arterials

With roads, getting it right for the end user is paramount. Our responsibility as designers is to ensure that the safety and convenience of people is at the forefront of our decisions.

Opus’ expertise covers all aspects of design, including dual carriageway and major intersections. We use robust verification techniques and work closely with our road safety engineering team, which includes accredited road safety auditors, to ensure our designs are as safe as possible.

Our design teams often collaborate to ensure resources are allocated effectively to deliver work on time.
