Overview

Background & Policy context

 

Objectives

The objectives of the project were as follows.

  • For Stage 1:
    • Collate information on flooding incidents that occurred on HA trunk roads between October and December 2000;
    • Identify common factors causing the flooding and compare actual conditions with drainage requirements in current HA guidance documents.
  • For Stage 2:
    • To review the advice contained in the existing HA documentation;
    • To develop and produce an HA guidance document on how to assess and deal with runoff draining to roads from natural catchments;
    • To produce an HA guidance document on the hydraulic design of culverts;
    • To produce recommendations on improved maintenance methods and procedures for highway drainage systems.
Methodology

The study was divided in two stages:

  1. A review of flooding incidents on the HA network between October and December 2000, and
  2. The production of supplementary guidance on the design and maintenance of highway drainage systems that will serve to increase the resilience of the HA network.
