This specification refers to pipe subsoil drains including the construction of trenches, the supplying and laying of perforated pipes of the specified type and size, the jointing of the pipes, the supplying and compacting of approved backfilling materials and the construction of connecting and outlet drains. Subsoil drainage can improve the soil moisture relationship by keeping the ground water-table well beneath the paved surface.
These notes are for guidance in the preparation of specifications for fence construction. Since suitable fencing types vary from district to district and even from job to job, a standard specification is not applicable. Specification F1 gives requirements for temporary fencing associated with earthworks, but requirements for permanent fencing should be in accordance with the local standard.
This specification and guidance notes refer to the use of perforated corrugated plastic pipe of up to 110mm nominal outside diameter in subsoil drains under light duty conditions, eg for use in agricultural land, playing fields and lightly loaded or load protected sections of the highway environment. The drains described in F5 may be used for road or civil engineering works not subjected to heavy vehicular traffic.
This specification covers the minimum requirements for installation of structures and their associated foundations for the NZ Transport Agency's ITS equipment.
This specification covers the minimum requirements for detailed design and construction of structures and their associated foundations for the NZ Transport Agency’s ITS equipment installation.
This specification covers the requirements for road safety barrier systems used on state highways. This 2009 specification is currently under review. For further information refer to Technical Advice - road safety hardware.
This specification replaces M19 which is now long out of date. It introduces to NZ the possible use of world best practice lighting columns including those known as passively safe or energy absorbing columns. Wide industry consultation has been undertaken and is reflected in the document. Current products compliant with the superseded M19 specification have been carried over in the new M26 specification. Local manufacturers and importers of lighting columns are required to seek inclusion of new products as 'type approved' for use on the state highway network in accordance with section 5 of the specification.
This specification sets out performance requirements for traffic sign manufacturers wishing to design and manufacture, and contractors wishing to install and maintain permanent traffic signs in New Zealand.
This specification sets out the requirements for the design, construction and operation of all stormwater improvements projects. It is anticipated that the standard stormwater specification is a starting set of specifications and may be adapted to address local issues and the scope of the project.
This standard covers the construction of the concrete weigh pit and fabrication and assembly of the swing arm barrier. The notes cover the requirements for the construction of approaches and the concrete single axle weigh pit for use with Telub scales model 10T and 1203 on state highways.
This policy document sets out the requirements for the inspection of bridges and other significant structures on the state highway network including the structural aspects of tunnels.
This policy document sets out the requirements for the inspection of geotechnical structures on the state highway network.
The Highway structures design guide sets out the NZ Transport Agency’s design requirements for all permanent highway structures on the state highway network. It also sets out the Transport Agency’s design requirements for earthworks, including natural slopes, embankments and cuttings.
Noise barriers are probably the most widely recognised form of noise mitigation used by the Transport Agency. Noise barriers need to be considered in the context of providing effective noise relief, while also addressing issues of appearance, urban design, site constraints, maintenance (including whole-of-life costs), safety, graffiti, cost and sustainability. This guide has been produced to aid Transport Agency staff and contractors with the design, construction and maintenance of noise barriers.

The standard is endorsed by NZ Transport Agency as a means of compliance with P24 Performance based specification for traffic signs.
This memo provide advice on using Bosspipe as an alternative to materials in F2 specifications.
These memos provide advice on using Bosspipe as an alternative to materials in F3 specification.
This memo provides details of grates that are acceptable in principle for use with precast concrete headwalls on state highways to protect the headwalls and vehicle occupants from the effects of vehicle impact.
This memo provides requirements for the provision of services on existing state highway structures. These requirements are intended to assist utility operators to prepare suitable documentation for review by the NZ Transport Agency.
This Technical advice note clarifies issues related to the utilisation of concrete barriers to temporarily detain rockfall and slope debris.
This Technical advice note outlines a proposed amendment to Bridge Manual clause 4.2.1 (f) and systems approved for use in the interim.
The purpose of this Technical advice note is to define a consistent mandatory approach for the verification of steel materials on NZ Transport Agency projects. This is an interim measure until a full specification has been developed.
This guide describes the processes to be used on NZ Transport Agency projects for assessing historic heritage effects and to determine appropriate mitigations.
Guidance on the design of passive rockfall protection structures, such as rockfall fences and embankments, which act as barriers to intercept and capture or divert falling rock to prevent it from impacting a critical structure.
