Pavement design and construction

Guide for estate roads (section 38) and section 106/278 works

The Developer is required to demonstrate that the construction of the pavement is carried out as specified according to the master pavement design guide of material for estate roads (PDF) [1MB]. The Developer shall demonstrate this with the relevant levels of testing and can demonstrate that they have achieved satisfactory results. In addition, the developer shall supply or make available the results to the Highway Authority (Norfolk County Council).

If a developer wishes to put forward designs not covered by this guidance document, they shall be considered along with the other relevant documentation, this shall then be treated as a departure from standard and will require approval from Norfolk County Council before the works take place.

The County Highways Laboratory (i.e. Norfolk Partnership Laboratory) may be able to offer assistance to developers in undertaking sampling/testing work by arrangement.
