Consistency of Roading Terminology

Consistency of Roading Terminology

With the SCIRT programme involving people from hundreds of different organisations, it was key that everyone used the same terminology to avoid confusion and errors throughout design and in the preparation of construction drawings and specifications for roading related earthquake repairs.

A Designer Guideline was developed and agreed with the Asset Owners, Christchurch City Council and the NZ Transport Agency, for a new set of terminology to describe roading-related earthquake repairs across the programme.
