DS-4.7 Connection

PreviousNext

  1. Connection includes any contributing point to the main transportation network and includes: 
    1. Private ways, accessways and rights-of-way (ROW).
    2. Service lanes.
Explanatory Note:
i), ii) and iii) above are generally privately owned.

DS-4.7.1   Private Ways, Accessways and Rights-of-Way

Drawing Ref: T124, T125, T126, T431, T432, T433, T434

The following shall apply:

  1. Urban
    1. Shall be constructed in accordance with the Standard Drawings unless otherwise approved by Council.
    2. Shall have a properly formed and sealed carriageway as per the Standard Drawings and shall be surfaced with asphaltic concrete, 2 Coat Chip Seal, concrete block paving or cast insitu concrete.
    3. Coloured concrete, exposed aggregate and decorative aggregate surfaces may be acceptable upon approval by Council.
    4. Stamped and imprinted concrete is not acceptable for accessways or right-of-ways.
    5. For private ways serving up to three dwellings vehicular access may be provided by concrete strips. Two concrete strips 750mm wide by 130mm thick with a 750mm central space between are acceptable.
    6. Kerbs may be mountable but provision shall be made to control and dispose of stormwater. This may require non-mountable kerbs or raised berms to control overland flow between adjacent lots.
    7. A standard urban vehicle crossing shall be provided.
    8. Stormwater drainage shall be provided by use of 450mm x 450mm sump or similar as approved by Council and 225mmØ discharge so that the maximum "run of water" does not exceed 90m and/or the area served by each sump shall not exceed 300m².
    9. Specific design for stormwater drainage shall be required if the longitudinal gradient exceeds 12%.
    10. The maximum gradient shall be 20% (1V:5H). Restrictions exist on the lengths and widths of urban privateways as in DS-4.5.1.1 Table 1: Design Requirements for Various Road Classifications.
  2. Rural
    1. Shall be constructed in accordance with the Standard Drawings unless otherwise approved by Council.
    2. Shall have a properly formed and sealed carriageway as per the Standard Drawings and shall be surfaced with asphaltic concrete, 2 Coat Chip Seal, concrete block paving or cast insitu concrete.
    3. Coloured concrete, exposed aggregate and decorative aggregate surfaces may be acceptable upon approval by Council.
    4. Stamped and imprinted concrete is not acceptable for accessways or right-of-ways.
    5. Where the City Plan permits and subject to appropriate approval from other users and adjacent property owners the carriageway surface may be formed from compacted basecourse. 
    6. Where new privateways are created, cut or fill batters shall be outside the privateway boundary. For the formation of privateways in existing easements, the formation shall occur through the centre of the reserve and all cut or fill batters steeper than 1V:4H shall be contained outside the existing easement. Culverts may be included within the privateway width where possible.
    7. A standard rural vehicle crossing shall be provided for each rural private way.
    8. For private ways serving up to three dwellings vehicular access may be provided by concrete strips. Two concrete strips 750mm wide by 130mm thick with a 750mm central space between are acceptable.
    9. Passing bays shall be formed at not more than 150m intervals and shall provide practical access for one 90 percentile car to park while another vehicle passes. These shall logically be located at one of the following:
      1. Entrances off the private way.
      2. At bends where sight distances allow.
      3. At widened sections of the carriageway to the dimensions shown on the Standard Drawings.
      4. Within the reserve width available.
    10. Passing bays shall be finished with the same surface as the right-of-way surface. The surface crossfall from the passing bay shall be a continuation of the crossfall on the private way surface.

DS-4.7.2   Commercial Service Lanes

Drawing Ref: T113

The following shall apply:

  1. Where a commercial development is to be provided with access by means of a service lane it shall consist of a minimum carriageway width of 5.5m with kerb and channel both sides.
  2. Consideration may be given in special circumstances (dictated by topography) to providing kerb and channel on one side only. Kerb and channel may be mountable with provision for sumps for stormwater removal.
  3. A minimum compacted depth of basecourse of 150mm shall be constructed on a subgrade with a minimum CBR of 7 or more and a minimum of asphaltic concrete seal is required.
  4. For swept path design criteria refer to New Zealand on Road Tracking Curves published by LTSA (August 2007) as RTS 18.

DS-4.7.3   Industrial Service Lanes

Drawing Ref: T113

The following shall apply:

  1. Where a service lane serves properties on one side only the carriageway surface may have a single cross-fall with kerb and channel on the lower side and a concrete edging strip flush with the surface on the high side. Otherwise the service lane shall be constructed with a central crown and with kerb and channel both sides.
  2. A minimum compacted depth of basecourse of 250mm shall be constructed on a subgrade with a minimum CBR of 7 or more. A minimum of asphaltic concrete seal is required.
  3. Specific requirements may also call for the provision of passing bays and/or turning circles.
  4. Grades shall not be less than 0.5% (1:200) or exceed 12.5% (1:8).
  5. For swept path design refer to New Zealand on Road Tracking Curves published by LTSA (August 2007) as RTS 18.
