Indian road network consists of national highways, state highways, major district roads, other district roads, village roads and having road length of 35lakh km. from past 3 years all the roads are upgrading to, as per traffic requirement. The geometry of the highway is to provide optimum efficiency in traffic Operations with maximum safety at reasonable cost. It is possible to design and construct the pavement of a road in stages, but it is very expensive and rather difficult to improve the geometric elements of a road on late stages. Hence, highway development needs proper planning method. Case study was conducted for Mysore outer ring road of 32.3km .Data collected was then be analysed qualitatively and quantitatively. Analyzed data is presented in tables.The development of effective road transport system is the primary need of any developing country and the upgrading of existing road network system is essential for the developed countries as the capacity of roads in urban and nonurban highways will reach to saturation level with the passage of time, due to increase traffic, ribbon development etc. Hence highway development needs proper planning method. In the present case study, civil 3D software which is now commonly used, has been used for the geometric design and design of drainage systems of various road elements.
