SPECIFYING THE SETTING OUT OF LINE SYSTEMS, AND THE MATERIALS USED

SPECIFYING THE SETTING OUT OF LINE SYSTEMS, AND THE MATERIALS USED

Specifications for Road Marking Layouts

If you need to know information about types of lines, positioning of lines, dimensions of lines, etc., there are three publications you need to be aware of.


The most useful is :-
TRAFFIC SIGNS MANUAL 5, ROAD MARKINGS, 1985.

But you may also need to refer to :-
TRAFFIC SIGNS MANUAL 3, REGULATORY SIGNS, 1986.

The statutory document is :-
THE TRAFFIC SIGNS REGULATIONS AND GENERAL DIRECTIONS, 2002.

And
LOCAL TRANSPORT NOTE 2/87, (SIGNS FOR CYCLE FACILITIES), is necessary for cycle signs.

Specifications for Road Marking Materials


The thermoplastic line itself, i.e. the nature of the materials it is made from, how you expect it to perform, and how you apply it to roads surfaces is comprehensively covered by :-

BS 3262 : Hot-applied thermoplastic road markings, 
It was in three parts :-
Part 1 : Specification for constituent materials and mixtures.
Part 2 : Specification for road performance.
Part 3 : Specification for application of material to road surfaces.

Other relevant specifications relating to road markings are :-

BS 6088 : Specification for solid glass beads for use with road marking compounds and for other industrial use

BS 6044 : Specification for pavement marking paints

D.fT. Standard TD 26/04 - Inspection and maintenance of road markings and road studs on motorways and all-purpose trunk roads
Specifies minimum requirements for line quality for trunk road work, including a 12 month minimum retro-reflectivity figure of 100 mcd/lux/sq.m., although this figure is not necessarily ensured, as I read the new document.
