Immediate works (S1.7)

There will be times when it becomes necessary to temporarily reinstate an excavation to permit immediate trafficking. In such circumstances, reinstatements may be completed using excavated or other materials compacted in 100 mm layers, with a minimum surfacing thickness of 40 mm of bituminous material.
All materials so placed that do not comply with the requirements of this Code must be re-excavated and reinstated to the appropriate interim or permanent standard as specified in S6, S7 or S8. This should be done as soon as practicable but, in any case, within 10 working days of completion of the immediate works or as agreed with the authority.
