This article is a very abbreviated version of a paper that I presented to the Western Cape Branch of SAICE. I had been asked how the geometric design of a road in a mountain pass differs from its design elsewhere. Thinking up my response made me appreciate that this is not simply a matter of saying 'follow the Geometric Design Manual'. So I tried to descriptionbe my thoughts in this connection - and, as many engineers have found out, this is not always as easy as just doing the job!
