GENERAL NOTES & SP ECIFICA TION

-  MATERIAL CHOICES ARE  TO BE DETERMINED ON THE GROUNDS OF

SUSTAINABILITY, LOW MAINTENANCE, VANDAL RESISTANCE.PRODUCT AVAILABILITY AND SUITABILITY TO THE CLIMATIC CONDITIONS. MATERIALS ARE TO BE LOCALLY SOURCED.

-   ENSURE MOWN HEIGHT OF GRASS (TURF) FINISHES FLUSH WITH PATH  EDGE.

-  ENSURE GARDEN AREAS (MULCH) FINISH 25mm BELOW ADJACENT PATH EDGE.

-  ENSURE EVEN GRADE CROSSFALL MIN. 1:50 TO PATH.

-  ENSURE DECO PATHS ARE LOCATED IN ACCORDANCE WITH DETAILED LANDSCAPE PLAN       AND PARKS CHAPTER OF INFRASTRUCTURE DESIGN PLANNING SCHEME POLICY.

-  AUSTRALIAN STANDARDS SHALL BE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CURRENT EDITIONS OF THE REFERENCED AUSTRALIAN STANDARDS EXCEPT WHERE VARIED BY SPECIFICATIONS AND/OR DRAWINGS.

-  FOR SLIP RESISTANCE REQUIREMENTS, REFER “REFERENCE SPECIFICATIONS FOR CIVIL ENGINEERING WORK” – S150 ROADWORKS.

-  REFER TO THE BRISBANE ACCESS AND INCLUSION PLAN 2012-2017 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION WHEN PLANNING AND DESIGNING THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT TO REASONABLY CONSIDER ACCESS AND INCLUSION FOR ALL WHERE APPROPRIATE.

-                  ALL DIMENSIONS IN MILLIMETRES (U.N.O.).

COMPACTION

-  COMPACT SUBBASE AND DECO MATERIAL SEPARATELY NOT LESS THAN 95% MAXIMUM DRY DENSITY AS DETERMINED BY THE MODIFIED COMPACTION TEST AS DEFINED IN AS1289 FOR THE UPPER 150mm. AVOID COMPACTION AROUND THE BASE OF EXISTING AND PROPOSED TREES.

SUBBASE PREPARATION

-  ENSURE SUBBASE PROFILE FORMS THE REQUIRED DRAINAGE FALLS WHEN THE SURFACE IS LAID.

 

SURFACE CONSTRUCTION

-  THE FOLLOWING STEPS ARE SUGGESTED AND WILL NEED TO BE REPEATED TO ACHIEVE THE FSL:

  • PLACE AND RAKE EVENLY APPROXIMATELY 30mm OF DECOMPOSED GRANITE MATERIAL.
  • ADD SOIL STABILISER DUSTAC OR SOILTAC® (OR APPROVED EQUIVALENT) AT A RATE RECOMMENDED BY MANUFACTURER ALTERNATIVELY RAKE

THROUGH CEMENT AT 5% RATIO.

  • MOISTEN THE MATERIAL AND COMPACT USING A VIBRATING ROLLER. THE ROLLER SHOULD NOT WEIGH  MORE THAN 30KG.

-  THE FINISHED SURFACE SHALL BE FREE FROM STONES EXCEEDING 20mm IN DIAMETER AND SHALL REMAIN FREE OF RUTS, SUBSIDENCE AND LACK OF COHESION.

-  IF AT TIME OF CONSTRUCTION, THE SUB-GRADE STRENGTH IS SUCH THAT IT IS PENETRATING /  INFILTRATING THE CLASS   2 GRAVEL LAYER DURING COMPACTION, A B.C.C. TYPE 3 GEOTEXTILE IS TO BE PLACED BETWEEN THE GRAVEL AND THE SUB-GRADE.
