Table of Content


1. GENERAL STANDARDS AND APPLICATION

This guideline lists the current design standards that are applicable to Main Roads works. It refers to AASHTO, Austroads, Australian Standards documents as well as Main Roads documents that are available in hardcopy form only. Where Main Roads hardcopy documents have been superseded by online documents, this is noted in the tables.

This list will be revised on a regular basis so that any new publications that are released by others can be added.

This list consists of four sections. The first section details Road, Traffic, Survey and Mapping related Design and Construction Standards, Codes and Guidelines. The second section details Bridge Design Codes and Manuals. The third section details Environment Standards and Guidelines and the fourth section details current Codes, Design Guides and Reference Material relating to Materials and Pavement Technology.

For each document the following information is given:

    • Title
    • Author
    • Edition
    • Latest edition and/or reprinted year
    • Superseded by
    • Available Format and Location

Where a document has been superseded by another document the details of the new document are provided, including the latest edition and available format. Where applicable the reprinted year is also provided.

Where a document is labelled as being available online, it can be found at www.mainroads.wa.gov.au under the relevant area.

The Main Roads website has a search engine which can be used to quickly find documents.

The Road and Traffic Engineering guidelines can be found under the Standards area of the website.

For each different responsibility area, contact details of the person responsible for maintaining that portion of the list is given.
