MANUAL OF CONTRACT DOCUMENTS FOR HIGHWAY WORKS. A USER'S GUIDE AND COMMENTARY. VOLUME ONE

The UK Department of Transport (DTp) Specification for Highway Works (SHW) has become a standard component of UK highway contracts since its introduction in 1951. This book brings together in an accessible form the requirements of the SHW, advice from the Notes for Guidance and other background documentation, and links these to the rules of measurement. It highlights the changes to the documents brought about by the Seventh Edition and comprehensively covers all aspects of the documents whether these have changed or not. It also draws to the user's attention those areas of difficulty where problems are likely to occur and where there are anomalies or inconsistencies in the documents. It is organized as follows: Introduction to the DTp SHW (Seventh Edition); 100 Series: Preliminaries; Introduction to the Technical Changes; 200 Series: Site Clearance; 300 Series: Fencing and Environmental Barriers; 400 Series: Safety Fences, Safety Barriers and Pedestrian Guardrails; 500 Series: Drainage and Service Ducts; 600 Series: Earthworks; and Fourth Edition of the Method of Measurement for Highway Works.
