Based on the advantages of the application of Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology in highway engineering, this paper analyzes the difficulties of its in-depth application, grasps the pain points of the application of BIM technology in practice, and approaches from the integration of BIM design-construction. This paper also puts forward the integration of cross-stage information based on the BIM + Geographic Information System (GIS) construction information management system to realize the BIM whole life cycle management, and provides directional support for the continuous and efficient application of BIM technology in engineering practice.
