The New COTO Specifications 2 – 3 March 2021
Materials and Construction of Earthworks and Pavement Layers
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). The Materials and Construction for Earthworks and Pavement Layers in the new Specifications differ considerably from the COLTO Specifications. They are now covered in two separate chapters, with the material requirements and sourcing (procurement) in Chapter 4, and the construction in Chapter 5. Material specifications have been revised; new materials are included, while alternative materials are also covered. The use of new technology construction is included in Chapter 5. Complete new measurement and payment items have been created in both chapters to cater for the split between the sourcing and construction. The course will familiarise practitioners with the new specifications, measurement and payment items in the two chapters, as well as related sections in other chapters.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
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.
