Standards for engineering infrastructure design and construction are intended for use by developers, contractors, consultants, service/utility operators, Auckland Transport and Auckland Council design engineers, planners, project managers and others who design and install facilities and services for transport in Auckland.
These are provided to establish minimum standards of work, to ensure that there is no reduction in the asset condition, or length of useful service in the life of the road asset.
With the establishment of Auckland Transport by merging the 7 former territorial authorities, Auckland Regional Council (ARC) and the Auckland Regional Transport Authority (ARTA). Auckland Transport inherited the respective historic policies, guidelines and standards of each of those former road controlling authorities.
To provide improved clarity and consistency throughout the Auckland region, the former legacy councils’ Engineering Infrastructure Standards are being reviewed in comparison to one another, giving cognisance to other relevant national and international standards, current best practice and innovative thought to potential improved concepts.
The outcome of this work will be contained in the Auckland Transport Code of Practice (ATCOP).
The ATCOP Consultation Draft has been published and the public can make submissions on it.
ATCOP contains AT’s recommended standards, however, in some cases the Engineering Infrastructure Design Standards of the previous councils may be applicable based on the status of the District Plans concerned.
