Code of practice for design of urban roads

This set of codes to design urban codes is an attempt to make a bridge between the current research on safe urban roads and safe road design in our cities today. For example the Indian Road Congress Standard (IRC) code for urban roads, IRC 86-1983, `The Geometric Guidelines for Urban Roads in Plains’, focuses on the safe and economic operation of the vehicle. The design speed limits and design standards have to be brought into conformity with the requirements of sustainable safety principles accepted universally.
