Design reference documents

Roads and Maritime Services Design Reference Documents are policy documents within the meaning of the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (NSW) (GIPA Act) and these documents are accordingly made available to you pursuant to Section 6 (1) of the GIPA Act.

Consistent with the GIPA Act, the purposes for which these documents have been made available for inspection by you are:

  • To satisfy Roads and Maritime's obligation under Section 6 (1) of the GIPA Act to make its policy documents available for inspection and purchase by members of the public, and
  • To ensure that you, as a member of the public who may be affected by the operation of this document, have access to the document.

The Design Reference Documents were developed by Roads and Maritime to set minimum design standards and provide guidance to designers of Roads and Maritime-funded infrastructure including roadworks and bridgeworks.

If you use these documents for any purpose which is not consistent with the above you do so at your own risk. Roads and Maritime accepts no liability whatsoever arising from use of the Design Reference Documents for a specific design. You must carry out all necessary works and checks to ensure that the design will perform as required.

Roads and Maritime makes no representations or warranty that the Design Reference Documents have been prepared with reasonable care and does not assume a duty of care to you. Roads and Maritime has no responsibility to inform you of any matter coming to Roads and Maritime's notice which may affect the quality of the Design Reference Documents in any way. You may print a copy of the Design Reference Documents for your own purposes and use them as the basis for designs for Roads and Maritime-funded infrastructure.

If electronic copies of the Design Reference Documents are required these may be supplied by the relevant Roads and Maritime Project Manager on application.
