ROAD HAUNCHES: A GUIDE TO MAINTENANCE PRACTICE. REPORT OF A WORKING GROUP. 2ND EDITION

Haunching or edge of carriageway strengthening has become an increasingly important highway maintenance technique in the UK. This report outlines the extent of the problem, obtained from results of questionnaire and interview surveys, and reviews all aspects of present maintenance practice for haunching. It then provides guidance on methods of investigating haunch defects, structural design and practicalities of carrying out haunch repairs. In an extensive series of appendices, details are given of specifications of and test methods for materials for haunching together with information on compaction plant. This second edition has been amended in the light of the publication of British Standard BS 574 1992; BS 4487 1993; the Department of Transport's Specification for highway works, 7th edition 1991, and the Highway Authorities and Utilities Committee (HAUC) Specification for reinstatement of openings in highways, 1992.
