Published: | Category: Activity management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

The report presents a definition of the scope and coverage of an ideal manual for the design of roading structures to meet the needs of Transit New Zealand and compares the present Transit New Zealand Bridge Manual and the 1992 Austroads Bridge Design Code with each other and the ideal manual.

Recommendations are made on which document to adopt as the basis for future development of a roading structures design manual, and on the adoption and development of criteria for revision of the manual.
