Infrastructure Development Code

CS-4.1 Stripping

PreviousNext

Areas where fill is to be placed or from which cut material is to be removed and/or alignments for haul roads shall be stripped of all topsoil and such other unsuitable soft or organic materials.
 
Stripping shall be carried out as a specific operation with areas being stripped in large enough increments to ensure there is an adequate margin of stripped land beyond any current cutting or filling operation. Particular care shall be taken to ensure that overspill is not left in an uncompacted state anywhere on the site when constructing temporary haul roads.
 
All stripped material shall be deposited in temporary stockpiles or permanent dump sites in locations where there is no possibility of the material being unintentionally covered by or incorporated into engineered fills. All temporary stockpiles shall be managed so that the stockpile does not discharge sediment or dust onto adjoining properties or waterways.
 
The stripped ground surface shall be prepared before inspection by the Geo-Professional. This shall take place before any fill is placed.
The perimeter of all sealed areas to be excavated shall be cut with suitable equipment to a sufficient depth to ensure the pavement and sealed surface outside the ripped or excavated area are not disturbed.
