DMRB Volume 4 Geotechnics & Drainage - Section 2 Drainage: HA 78/96 Design of Outfalls for Surface Water Channels

Read document description

Surface water channels for drainage of runoff from highways can be a suitable alternative to conventional kerbs and gullies or filter drains. Amongst other advantages, such as providing separate systems for drainage of surface and sub-surface water, they allow greater distances between outlets when compared with conventional gully systems. HA 37 “Hydraulic Design of Road-edge Surface Water Channels” (DMRB 4.2.1) provides a method of determining the required spacing between outlets for surface water channels.

DMRB Volume 4 Geotechnics & Drainage - Section 2 Drainage: HA 39/98 Edge of Pavement Details

Read document description

This Advice Note describes the various types of edge of pavement drainage details which are depicted in the ‘B’ and ‘F’ Series of the Highway Construction Details: Manual of Contract Documents for Highway Works (HCD) (MCHW 3) and provides guidance on the use of the details. It also includes details of additional information required for contract documentation.

DMRB Volume 4 Geotechnics & Drainage - Section 2 Drainage: HA 103/06 Vegetative Treatment Systems for Highway Runoff

Read document description

This Advice Note gives guidance on how vegetated drainage systems may be used to convey, store and treat highway runoff. They are described as vegetated drainage systems because they contain a significant element of vegetation and they are designed for use especially in highway drainage networks. They are similar to systems described elsewhere as Sustainable Drainage Systems (SUDS). Designers should note that not all SUDS are appropriate for highway use.

DMRB Volume 4 Geotechnics & Drainage - Section 2 Drainage: HA 106/04 Drainage of Runoff from Natural Catchments

Read document description

This Advice Note gives guidance on how to deal with surface water runoff from natural catchments draining towards trunk roads (including motorways), in order to limit the frequency and severity of flooding incidents caused by runoff from beyond the highway boundary.

DMRB Volume 4 Geotechnics & Drainage - Section 2 Drainage: TA 80/99 Surface Drainage of Wide Carriageways

Read document description

This Advice Note gives general principles to be followed to determine whether a drainage problem would occur due to improvements to existing roads or to the geometric design of new roads, and gives advice on the measures to be adopted to remedy such a problem. It should be read in conjunction with HD 33/96 (DMRB 4.2) Surface and Sub-surface Drainage Systems for Highways.

DMRB Volume 4 Geotechnics & Drainage - Section 2 Drainage: HD 33/06 Surface and Sub-surface Drainage Systems for Highways

Read document description

This Standard gives guidance on the selection of the types of surface and sub-surface drainage for trunk roads including motorways. It describes the various alternative solutions that are available to drain trunk roads in the UK, including their potential to control pollution and flooding. It also includes guidance on drainage of earthworks associated with highway schemes and appropriate signing for pollution control devices.

DMRB Volume 4 Geotechnics & Drainage - Section 2 Drainage: HA 105/04 Sumpless Gullies

Read document description

This Advice Note gives guidance on the use of sumpless gullies as an alternative to conventional gullies that have a sump. Although the advice should be fully taken into account in the design of new schemes, this Advice Note contains no mandatory requirements.
