Following an introduction (Chapter 1), this document outlines the objectives of the guideline, and its intended target audience (Chapter 2) and summarises the pavement options (Chapter 3). The main body of the document then comprises a series of technical chapters (Chapters 4-8) relating directly to specific RRST [Rural Road Surfacing Trials] pavement options and their specifications, grouped as follows:
* Surface seals
* Stabilised bases and sub-bases
* Non stabilised bases and sub-bases
* Block pavement options
* Cement Concrete pavements
A final chapter (Chapter 9) deals with key shoulder construction issues, which influence the integrity and performance of the actual road pavements. Following these main chapters the document contains three important appendices. The first contains a series of illustrated guides to key construction issues for the RRDST pavement options. The second highlights some fundamental issues relating to site supervision and construction quality control, whilst the third contains a series of standard site forms developed and used during the RRST construction phases.
