Bentley bites back

Autodesk may have knockout plans, but Bentley has not hit the canvas yet. Right now UK consultants are working up some of the biggest and most complex roads jobs using Bentley MX.

WSP is sticking with Bentley for its work on the ongoing widening of the M25 between the M4 and M3 motorways.

Mott MacDonald is the Highways Agency's design advisor on the 12.4km A303 Stonehenge improvement, which is awaiting planning approval. The complex scheme involves a 2.1km long bored tunnel, a flyover at Countess roundabout, improvement at Longbarrow crossroads and a bypass for the village of Winterbourne Stoke.

Real benefits have come from using Bentley MX as the main tool for both survey and design, explains Mott MacDonald director of highways Stuart Bromley.

'We should eliminate any errors which might arise from data transfer and maintain the 3D integrity of the design at all times.'
