Abstract: The present case study deals with development of existing roads to master plan roads. The roads from NH-5 junction to kommadi village, NH-5 to Navodhaya School, are located in Visakhapatnam city in India. Particularly these areas are densely populated and occupied with housing units, schools and commercial buildings. As these roads could not meet the present & and future demand, new road proposals was put forward by Visakhapatnam development authority (VUDA) to widen the existing road to master plan road. The present condition of the road is in deteriorated state which is sacrificed and new pavement design is proposed according to IRC-37:2001 recommendations. The studies involves collection of details such as road width, gradient, deflection angle, length of curve and radius of curve and design them to the prescribed standards of IRC code. The curve parameters have been measured using theodolite by traversing along center line of the curve.
