Hope someone can help with this -

I have a shapefile of road centrelines. I now need to be able to extract sections of these lines into a new shapefile i.e. for Road A I need to extract sections between 100 and 175metres, 310 and 335metres etc. Is there any way of doing this?
I have approx 9500 road centrelines and 13500 sections to extract from them. The sections to be extracted are in an excel file and do not have any coordinates, only start and end chainages.

Any help appreciated, even if it's to say "that's impossible"
