PAVEMENT SURFACE DRAINAGE SYMPOSIUM, SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES, 2-3 MAY 1979. PROGRAM AND PAPERS

The total surface area of pavement has increased markedly in the past decade, and the occurrence of individual situations involving unusually broad pavements is more common (eg multilane carriageways, intersections and industrial pavements). The effective drainage of such areas requires detailed attention at the design stage to avoid the unacceptable occurrence of situations that are unsafe, aesthetically unpleasant, or damaging to the environment. Papers presented at the symposium outline the nature of the problems and discuss techniques and new technologies aimed at reducing the effects of such situations. Considerable work has been undertaken in recent years by a number of authorities in the model testing and field evaluation of kerb and channel inlets which have traditionally been regarded as bottlenecks in the pavement drainage system. A session of the symposium has been devoted to consolidation of this research. (TRRL)
