The new COTO Standard Specifications for Road and Bridge Works for South African Road Authorities, October 2020 were approved by the Committee of Transport Officials as a Draft Standard and will be replacing the COLTO Standard Specifications for Road and Bridge Works for State Road Authorities (1998 edition). Some of the new Specifications differ considerably from the COLTO Specifications. The relevant Specifications for pre-treatment works and surface treatments are covered in two separate chapters. The course will familiarise practitioners with the new specifications, measurement and payment items in the two chapters. Specific emphasis will be placed on significant changes to the COLTO 1998 edition.


Attendance of the course will be beneficial to all practitioners involved in road pavement design, investigation, construction and testing such as road authorities, consulting engineers, compilers of procurement documentation, contractors, tendering and pricing departments, and road laboratories. Commercial suppliers of materials for earthworks and pavement layers will also gain knowledge of the new material specifications. SANRAL has already decided that the new COTO Standard Specifications (2020) will be mandatory for use in their procurement documents advertised as from 1 March 2021.
