One of the significant issues in road designing is the selection of the optimal route alignment. This issue arises in the situation when new road alignment or motorway alignment need to be defined for a newly designed road or motorway. Considering there are multiple solutions, with its advantages and disadvantages, as well as a range of conflicting criteria for selecting the optimal route alignment, this issue belongs to the group of multicriteria decision-making (MCDM) problems. The MCDM-based methodology will be applied in this paper using PROMETHEE method. The methodology will be implemented on a case study on real example. The results and optimal solution will be in function of various traffic, financial, and environmental criteria. Sensitivity analysis will be conducted to show stability of optimal solution and stability of rank order.
