Cruises populations are sections where numerous conflicts between road users on the one hand and on the other resident population arise. It is therefore necessary to find a method to analyze of all the crossings that present greater problems, which must be replaced by a variant and, among the latter, which are more priority in terms of implementation.

In this article the methodology developed and used in the Highways and Infrastructure of the Junta de Castilla y Leon really know what those needs are and to articulate proposals for programming actions exposed.

It is a simple, easily informatizable systematic that, depending on the characteristic data of each section (traffic, number of inhabitants, accidents, etc.) valued each crossing determining whether its replacement by an alternative route (variant) is strictly necessary and to what extent this substitution is more or less a priority. This according to an objective score of 1 100 to.

economic criteria are excluded in all these considerations, because the needs are not related or the costs nor returns. This is a discussion on another plane and in any case, later.
