SURFACE DRAINAGE DURING CONSTRUCTION

Problems associated with drainage runoff during construction frequently have severe effects on both the job and upon areas outside the works site. Probably, in the past, insufficient attention and effort has been directed to minimise erosion, sedimentation and flooding during the construction period. This is despite the fact that with adequate pre-planning and timely implementation, preventative measurements add little if any costs to the project. This paper describes recent improved construction practices and recommends procedures which should be adopted in the planning and construction of all road projects irrespective of nature or size. Particular emphasis is placed on additional control considered necessary in the specification and construction implementation areas. (A). (TRRL)
