DESIGN MANUAL FOR ROADS AND BRIDGES. VOL 6, SECTION 1, PART 2. CROSS-SECTIONS AND HEADROOMS

This Department of Transport Standard gives details of the cross sections and headroom clearances to be used for trunk roads, including motorways, both on open roads and at structures excluding tunnels. This Standard updates and supersedes TD 27/86 and SH 2/92 in Scotland. It also supersedes the Series A drawings in the Highway Construction Details. The major changes are as follows: (i) Emphasis has been placed on the need to consider all relevant factors before choosing berm, side slope, verge or central reserve widths. Advice on the factors affecting this choice has been amplified; (ii) Greater flexibility in the width ranges for verges and central reserves has been introduced; (iii) Relaxations and Departures from this Standard have been defined; (iv) The presentation of information has been clarified and improved, with new tables and additional figures.
