Roads and Maritime Services Urban Design Guidelines


A number of detailed guidelines, dealing with specific urban design issues, have been  produced as a suite of documents by the Roads and Maritime Services Centre for Urban  Design.

‘Beyond the Pavement urban design policy, procedures and design principles' is the Centre  for Urban Design’s overarching urban design policy. It is supplemented by various guideline  documents on specific areas of work such as bridges, noise walls, landscape, water sensitive urban design and shotcrete.

The ‘suite’ aims to create a set of reference documents to achieve good design and illustrate successful outcomes that are aesthetically pleasing, durable, sustainable and value for  money.

The suite of documents includes:

Further guidelines will be developed as required.

Ultimately the goal of the guidelines is to improve road and maritime projects and, through them, our towns and cities.
