Roads and railways, as a foundation part of transport infrastructure of the region, influences both the economic growth and the social cohesion. A region cannot be competitive without an efficient transport network. Development of roads and railways network provides missing links for the movement of goods, services, and people. As the demand for roads and railway infrastructure increases, CeS.TRA is ready to offer to our clients consulting services comprising extensive civil engineering skills. Specialists at CeS.TRA have worked on all types of road projects, including city and residential streets, dual-lane highways, bicycle & pedestrian pathways. We have experience in all phases of road and highway design and engineering, from concept to the construction phases. Our designers have experience in the provision of road design services to state, local road authorities and private developers. Projects undertaken range from small intersection upgrades to large urban and rural highways. Also, CeS.TRA has a strong rail practice and we are providing a full range of consulting services for passenger and freight rail lines. CeS.TRA is reliable partner to the Government authorities in the field of technical support through the tender preparation and negotiation process of the private public partnerships and concessions.

For the road, railway and airport design CeS.TRA uses a number of computerized tools in our designs including the following:

  • AutoCAD, commercial computer-aided design and drafting software application
  • AutoCAD Civil 3D, Autodesk software that allows civil engineering design and documentation solution and supports Building Information Modeling workflows
  • InfraWorks, Autodesk software that allows designers and civil engineers to plan and design infrastructure projects in the context of the real world
  • GCM Civil Modeller, AutoCAD based software that supports modeling of linear (highways, railways) and planar (parking lots, airports, crossroads etc.) civil engineering facilities
  • CECS, AutoCAD based software intended for all civil and land development design jobs i.e. for road/highway/rail design.)
