highway, geodetic measurements, road construction, marking works


Geodetic works accompany road design and construction at all stages of the life cycle of highways, therefore it is expedient to determine the requirements for the composition and content of geodetic works during the construction, reconstruction and overhaul of highways. The purpose of this article is to determine the composition and content of geodetic works during the construction, reconstruction and overhaul of highways and artificial structures.

By types, geodetic work in road construction can be conditionally divided into basic and preparatory. The composition and content of the main geodetic works in road construction include:

– engineering and geodetic surveys, performed in order to meet the needs of design, development of working and executive documentation;

– implementation of marking works at the stage of construction of highways and transport facilities;

– geodetic control and executive (control) removal of completed construction elements and road construction objects;

– geodetic monitoring of road construction objects;

– development of decisions regarding the organization of geodetic works as part of the construction organization project and a separate project for the execution of geodetic works with the selection of an effective method of performing geodetic works taking into account the construction technology.

The composition and content of preparatory geodetic works include information and documentary support for geodetic works:

– collection and analysis of archival materials;

– collecting and obtaining information about the availability of points of the state geodetic network or the location of reference stations;

– collection and acquisition of information on reference geodetic and geodetic marking networks;

– familiarization with project and working documentation;

– obtaining permits for performing geodetic works.

The technology for performing the listed works must be carried out in strict compliance with the requirements of DSTU 9154:2021 «Guidance on performance of geodesic works in road building», which came into force on September 1, 2022.

The considered features of the composition and content of geodetic works in road construction are partially reflected in DSTU 9154:2021 «Instructions for performing geodetic works in road construction».
