This specification and guidance notes apply to the reflectorised and non-reflectorised marking of sealed and paved road surfaces in paint, thermoplastic and other types of roadmarking materials. Thermoplastic application is limited to machine screeding, machine spray and machine extrusion. Paint shall be applied by machine spray methods only. Not recommended for use on state highways - please use P/22 Specification for reflectorised pavement marking.

Quality standard TQS1

Published: | Category: Quality assurance , Manuals | Audiences: Road traffic engineers & consultants, Roading contractors

Transit has adopted a two level concept where contracts involving road construction, road maintenance, and structures activities are assigned a quality assurance level High (TQS1) or Normal (TQS2). The standard were originally issued in 1995. It has been updated and re-issued as Second Edition: June 2005. The minimum quality system requirements for state highway physical works contracts assessed at the high quality assurance level. It requires third party certification by an approved certification body.

Research Report 574 Geosynthetics in basecourse stablisation

Published: | Category: Activity management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audiences: Road controlling authorities, Road traffic engineers & consultants, Roading contractors

The application of geosynthetics (ie geogrids) for the stabilisation of basecourses prepared with a River Run rounded gravel aggregate was investigated. Reductions in the rate of rut formation by over 50% were observed when geogrids were included either at the basecourse/sub-base interface or at half-height of the basecourse. The rate of rut formation was reduced further if a square type geogrid was used in place of a triaxial type geogrid. It was found that the basecourse rutted rapidly if the surface was not confined, due to the lack of particle interlock and surface confining stress. If the surface was confined with a thin (ie < 40mm) asphalt layer to bind together the particles in the surface, then the aggregate provided significant support and reduced rutting by over 90%, even without the addition of geosynthetic stabilisation.
