Highways England, under Volume 3 and 3A of the Manual of Contract Documents for Highway Works, have published a series of highway construction details for motorways and trunk roads.
Not all these details apply to road works carried out on our road network, so we have developed details when carrying out highway works within Warwickshire.
The details are used as the minimum standard for road works being carried out by either the highway authority and developers who have entered into Section 278 Agreements under the Highways Act 1980 to deliver Major Works with Engineering Design Services.
For developers who have entered into Section 38, 184 or 278 Agreements under the Highways Act 1980 to carry out minor works or estate roads please contact Highways Development Management firstname.lastname@example.org, as these schemes require a separate set of standard details to be used, noting the increased duration of build programme and volume of construction traffic.
Highway construction work carried out under a Section 278 Agreement will be undertaken directly by the highway authority using one of its approved contractors.
Volume one – highway sections, edge of pavement details, highway drainage, fences, stile and gates, ducts and miscellaneous details:
Volume two – details of shared and segregated cycleway/footway facilities:
County road construction strategy
As well as the highway construction details, The Local Highway Authority also has its own County Road Construction Strategy. This document is used in conjunction with the highway construction details to determine the pavement construction specification for the works.
