Eurocodes for the design of highway structures (including any associated geotechnical works, but not
including approach embankments or ground bearing temporary works) and aspects of execution
relevant to the design.
This document aims to promote the concept of design for durability, thereby shifting the emphasis to a
lowest whole life cost design philosophy. It gives requirements and advice to be used in conjunction
with current design standards to improve the durability of highway structures and minimise future
maintenance to avoid disruption.
