COTO Chap 12 presentations 2021


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 Authorities (1998 edition). Some of the new Specifications differ considerably from the COLTO Specifications and none more so than the Geotechnical Specifications of Chapter 12 which present a number of sub-chapters comprising new specification.

These will be presented over 2 days. The course will familiarise practitioners with the new Chapter 12 specifications, measurement and payment items. Significant changes to the COLTO 1998 edition will be advised but emphasis will be on new specification.


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. Commercial suppliers of Geotechnical 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.

Presenters: Dr, G V Price, Alan Parrock,Louis Melis and Gerhard Fourie
