7.1 GENERAL

7.1.1 INTRODUCTION

7.1.2 The road pavement design for the roads described in Table 1 of this Appendix is in
accordance with the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges (DMRB) and the
Specification for Highway Works (SHW).

7.1.3 The principal standards used for the design are;


• HD 26/06 Pavement Design
• IAN 73/06 Rev 1 Design Guidance for Road Pavement Foundations
• HD 36/06 Surfacing Materials for Maintenance and Construction
• BS 594987-2010

7.1.4 Drawings 17342/HW/S1/700/001 to 005 provide locations of Pavement Types.

7.1.5 The foundation surface modulus shall not be less than 120 megapascals and shall be
tested in-line with the methodology outlined in Highways Agency IAN73/06.

7.1.6 Where the pavement design uses the existing pavement the requirement of Highways
Agency IAN73/06 to provide a constant thickness of all foundation layers over the full
width of the pavement shall not apply.

7.1.7 The subgrade CBR value must be checked on site before foundation construction starts,
in accordance with Clause 893 of the Specification and must be equal to, or be greater
than, the Design CBR.

7.1.8 If the in-situ CBR is found to be less than the Design CBR, then the subgrade must be
improved to the Design CBR.

7.1.9 All lanes of the carriageway(s) and, where applicable, hard strips, hard shoulders, lay-bys,
bus lay-bys and maintenance crossing points for all roads described in Table 1 shall be
sufficient to carry the design traffic in the left hand lane of the relevant carriageway.

7.1.10 The Side Road pavement design for all roads described in Table 1 shall be designed to
accommodate the required traffic loading unless otherwise specified by the IoW
Council.

HCA Ramboll

SO40 7HT
7.1.11 The overlay designs are preliminary and based on the Isle of Wight Council’s Non-
Destructive Survey Testing Data and will be reviewed as more detailed condition
information from other surveys and Laboratory Testing becomes available.

7.1.12 GENERAL NOTES

7.1.13 Where the existing pavement is to be retained and strengthened by overlay, the existing
surface course shall be removed prior to the placement of the new bituminous
material. The depth shall be ascertained prior to milling to ensure the remaining
bitumen layers are not compromised.

7.1.14 The Contractor shall consult and comply with the requirements of:

• Isle of Wight Council as appropriate, in connection with the pavement design for all
carriageway tie-ins.

7.1.15 The road pavement shall extend transversely over the entire width of the carriageway
and longitudinally up to the extents of work.

7.1.16 Where high skid resistant surfacing is provided, it shall be grey or black in colour.

7.1.17 Porous asphalt surface courses shall not be permitted in the Works.

7.1.18 Vertical joints between existing and new construction shall be painted with a polymer
modified bond coat to Clause 920AM. The positioning of these joints within the wheel
track zones shall be avoided although in areas where this is not viable, then
appropriate strengthening measures shall be taken to ensure that the risk of reflective
cracking is prevented. The joints shall be chamfered at 60 to 70 degrees where
possible in order to aid the compaction of the adjoining new material.

7.1.19 During the first pass of the roller, along the longitudinal joint, the edge shall be
compacted and shaped by the compaction pinch wheel. The compaction pinch wheel
shall be mounted on the front roller on a tandem crab steer roller.

7.1.20 If the paver does not form the joint correctly, the defective area must be removed in a
straight line. The new joint shall be cut in hot material only and checked with a
suitable straightedge and marked to the full extent of the defective area.

7.1.21 Open joints shall be cut and shaped using the following methods:

HCA Ramboll
Bridge House Carlton House
1 Walnut Tree Close Ringwood Road
Guildford Woodlands
GU1 4GA Southampton
SO40 7HT
• cut while hot with a cutting disk on the roller;
• milling off with a planer; and
• by hand shaping with a shovel or rake (Small areas only).

7.1.22 To protect the joint, the cut-away waste material shall be left in place, until the new
DBM50 is to be laid. After removal of the cut-away material, the joint shall be cleaned
and prepared as in the paragraph below.

7.1.23 All pavement layers shall be constructed using the echelon paving technique unless an
alternative technique has been approved by the Engineer through the submission of
alternative proposals in accordance with the Review Procedure.

7.1.24 The joint shall be cleaned of all deleterious material and a specialised hot polymer
modified bitumen shall be applied to all inclined faces of DBM50. It shall be hot
sprayed over the entire inclined face of the joint at a rate of 0.2 litres/m per 40mm
depth and the runoff shall collect on the existing base or binder. Adjustments to
spread rate shall be made for deeper layers on a pro-rata basis.

7.1.25 Where there is a vertical joint between existing and new materials that have different
characteristics, other hot pour joint materials or specialist bituminous joint tape shall
be used.

7.1.26 Transverse day joints shall be kept to a minimum and constructed in the same way as
longitudinal “Hot to Cold” joints.

7.1.27 The Contractor shall ensure that directional drilling is undertaken where drains, services
and the like are required to cross existing and new carriageways in the Works. Open
carriageway trenching will not be permitted without prior agreement from the
Engineer.

7.1.28 The design of new roads, as described in Table 1, shall incorporate between each
bituminous bound pavement layer and overlying surface course system, a polymer
modified bond coat to Clause 920AM. Where the overlying layer is required to be a
thin surface course, the bond coat shall be appropriate to the requirements of the
manufacturer of the system in question.

7.1.29 The nominal aggregate size for the binder course layer shall be 20 millimetres and for
base layers the nominal aggregate size shall be 32 millimetres.

the pavement foundation and to provide a down slope route from the sub-base to the
subsurface drain shall apply and the Contractor shall ensure compliance.

6. Procedures for Isolating Power

The isolation and re-energising of supplies shall be the responsibility of the Contractor.

The Contractor will be required to provide a 24 hour contact responsible for electrical work on
Site.

Failure to re-energise circuits at the end of each working day will incur call-out charges from the
Term Maintenance Contractor for which the Contractor will be liable.
24 hours’ notice shall be given to the Overseeing Organisation prior to equipment being isolated
on the network.

The isolation of individual circuits shall be carried out by locking off any source of electrical and
mechanical contact with any source of supply. Isolation of circuits in this manner may only be
carried out by an electrician employed by a NICEIC accredited organisation qualified in
compliance with Health and Safety requirements.

It is the Contractor’s responsibility to identify and prove column supply sources prior to isolation
and work commencing.

7. Distribution Network Operator (DNO) Supplies

Where DNO supplies are required to be isolated above the cut-out, only competent and
authorised persons in accordance with G39 Category 2 status may remove the fuse. The names
of the competent and authorised persons must be submitted to the Overseeing Organisation
prior to the commencement of any work.

Where electricity company supplies are required to be isolated below the cut-out, the
Overseeing Organisation must be informed and the Contractor must then liaise with the DNO
before work commences.

The Contractor will place all orders with the DNO for the disconnection and connection of
supplies. However, it is the Contractor’s responsibility to liaise with and manage the DNO to
ensure the disconnection/connection of supplies meets with the agreed programme of works.
The Contractor must incorporate the DNO’s programme into his own programme, and the whole
