Surface Dressing Code of Practice

Read document description

This sixth edition of the Code of Practice has been produced by the RSTA Surface Dressing Technical Committee. It has been reviewed in the context of the European Standard for Surface Dressing BS EN 12271 published in September 2006 along with the national guidance document PD6689:2009. This document has been peer reviewed by ADEPT Soils, Materials, Design and Specifications Committee. To the highway engineer, surface dressing offers a quick, efficient and cost-effective way of maintaining skid-resistant and waterproofing road surfaces. To obtain the best results it is necessary to give careful consideration to a wide range of detail and to plan and design the work carefully. The speed of the surface dressing operation and the short duration of time during which motorists are inconvenienced is also an important issue. The purposes of surface dressing are to waterproof the road surface, to arrest disintegration, to provide texture, and provide a skid-resistant surface. This latter quality can play a major part in accident reduction and was highlighted by the initiative of the Department of Transport in 1987 when the Minister introduced minimum mean summer SFC values for motorways and trunk roads. The importance of surface texture as provided by surface dressing has been highlighted by TRL report LR 286, which stresses that texture depth is important under both wet and dry conditions. Up to date guidance is available in the Design Manual for Roads & Bridges (DMRB): Volume 7 HD 28. The DMRB is available on line at www.dft.gov.uk/ha/standards/dmrb/. A useful way of comparing the effectiveness of a dressing, or other maintenance work, is to express it in terms of a ‘cost life index’. This is the cost per square metre of the work divided by the service life in years. It provides a measure of the “value for money” which the highway authority is achieving. A low ‘cost life index’ and “high value for money” is the result of high-quality work. The purpose of this Code is to identify the important aspects of the process, and to refer to other documents relating to good surface dressing practice and so give practical guidance on achieving high quality.

Management of Highway Structures Complementary Guidance

Read document description

Management of Highway Structures: A Code of Practice was published in September 2005. Since then Government Policy in respect to highway and structures management has developed and evolved in a number of areas, including the introduction of new statutory duties on highways authorities. There have also been developments/advances with regard to recognised good practice. To assist users of the Code, the Roads Liaison Group has prepared this complementary guidance which takes account of these changes and developments. Where appropriate, the complementary guidance provides details of where to find up-to-date information that can assist with the implementation of the good practice set out in the Code. Users of the Code should treat this complementary guidance as up-to-date and having the same status as the Code. Where paragraphs have been amended, they supersede the ones in the Code.

DMRB Volume 1 Highway Structures: Approval Procedures and General Design - Section 1 Approval Procedures: BD 2/05 Technical Approval of Highway Structures

Read document description

Technical requirements for the design, construction, maintenance and operation of Highway Structures are contained in the TAS (in some forms of contract, such as design and construct, these may be contained in the contract requirements). The TAS normally includes the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges (DMRB), the Manual of Contract Documents for Highway Works (MCHW) and other supplementary Standards for specific project requirements. TAA should be consulted at the earliest appropriate opportunity in order to avoid the risk of abortive work and allow timely consideration to be given to the Proposals.
