NZRF line removal guide: rev 1: 2004

The revision of pavement marking layouts routinely requires the removal of existing markings and the re-application of markings at the revised location and pattern. In addition, particular materials and/or line types may have an adverse affect on subsequent resealing operations, and the markings need to be removed to enable effective seal application. Although there are a number of methods that may be used to remove markings, the methods available for a particular application may be limited by the marking material and the pavement surface. In addition, the cost-effectiveness of particular treatments is dependent on the quantity of markings to be removed. This guide is aimed at providing a general description of the more common line removal methods, with a simplified method for the selection of an appropriate removal system for different marking types on particular pavement substrates. References to appropriate legislation are also provided.
