This may be possible in a manual sort of way using the 'Advanced Digitizing Tools' Using this tool you can specify a distance. Then you just need to set up your snapping options to snap on intersection with your contour layer. As you can see in the image below a dark blue circumference guide helps you visualize the extent of your reach.

If I understand your question, you want to design a road thru a sloped terrain, with start and end points. And you need to keep the slope of the road at minimum. If this is the case, then working with contour lines just complicates the process. There are "least cost path" tools available that work on raster layers. So you should revert your contour lines ...

This can be solved with linear referencing. Use the Create Route tool to convert the lines into routes. Make an ID field identical to the ObjectID if you have no existing unique ID for the lines. To preserve the line direction, calculate a field for the From Distance that is 0 and a field for the To distance which is the line length, then use the Two ...

You can do this using the Network Analyst Extension. Build a network using your road layer (requires network analyst extension) Identify nearest polygon using point distance tool or near tool (or use existing point if known) Add nearest polygon point and postcode point as stops in the network solver then compute a route distance from your post code point ...

I ran into the same Problem. For me, it worked out when I used the "Feature To Line" Tool on the roads shapefile before I used it to build the network dataset. This splits all your roads at intersections which is apparently a good thing to do before you build your network. I further increased the number of found routes by removing all disconnected parts of ...
