NG7 Rigid and Modular Roads
NG7.1 Reinstatement Methods
1) The requirements of this Specification shall apply to all rigid roads up to 125 msa traffic flow. All rigid roads with existing traffic flows exceeding 30 msa must be identified by the Authority, prior to the commencement of works, so that reinstatement requirements can be agreed.
2) Some modern concrete roads, constructed in accordance with current Government standards and specifications, may incorporate special design philosophies that are beyond the scope of this Specification. Similarly, there may be other existing rigid road designs that will also require the use of particular reinstatement methods. Such roads must also be identified by the Authority, prior to the commencement of works, so that reinstatement requirements can be agreed.
