Design Manual for Roads and Bridges: Vol. 1 Highway structures: approval procedures and general design. Section 1 Approval procedures. Part 1 Technical approval of highway structures. BD 2/12
- Highways Agency
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
This Standard specifies the Technical Approval (TA) procedures for highway structures on motorways and other trunk roads or designated roads. It updates and supersedes BD 2/05 (ISBN 9780115526978).
The TA procedures:
give increased assurance for the required execution, refurbishment or demolition of highway structures;
help ensure Proposals are safe to implement, serviceable in use, economic to build and maintain, sustainable and perform their intended function; and
ensure that highway users, the public and any others who may be affected are protected from any adverse effects resulting from any work carried out.
Subject to any exclusions stated in this document TA procedures must be applied to:
proposals to construct, widen, assess, improve, repair or demolish a structure within the highway boundary; and
instances where Proposals for highway structures that are outside the highway boundary are to be adopted by the overseeing organisation.
It is recommended TA procedures also be applied to Proposals for structures that are outside the highway boundary where the design, construction, maintenance or demolition of the structure may affect the highway, highway structure or the safety of the highway user.
