The project to undertake the Preparation of a Pavement Design Manual and Standard Bidding Documents for Low Volume Roads in Malawi commenced on 10th October 2011. The main objective of this project is to develop the documentation needed by practitioners in the Roads Authority and private sector in Malawi to design low volume roads to appropriate standards and specifications that allow the use of locally available materials to the maximum extent possible. The documentation will include a pavement design manual based on the Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) method and simplified bidding documents appropriate to that class of road.
