Drafting and design presentation standards

The Drafting and Design Presentation Standards Manual provides guidelines for the management of design quality in the planning and design of road infrastructure projects. It also sets the policy and drafting standards for presenting the design to provide a consistent interface with the road construction industry.

This manual provides the means for designers to deliver a design fit for its intended purpose, comply with all legislative and corporate requirements and enhance the potential for the project to be constructed in accordance with 'the design' through the supply of appropriate construction information.
