Supported detailed design of 246 kilometres of road through urban and rural areas. Historic data was collated, existing system identified and benchmarks located and assessed. A GPS network was established, topographic mapping done and concreted control beacons placed every 1km. The local horizontal datum (Arc 1950) was tied into and all heights referenced to the local benchmark datum. A project specific datum transformation was derived. Provided topographic mapping of each location showing all relevant details, vertical alignment details and survey data.
