Municipal Design Standard Drawings

Notice

Please note that these documents are only for reference and must not form part of any design or construction contract unless otherwise specifically instructed by the relevant parties.

These documents have been made available as part of a two (2) year trial of the new Municipal Infrastructure Design Standards and have been released specifically for review and comment only. These documents will ultimately replace the current Design Standards for works within developments, as well as minor municipal works, at the end of 2017 trial period.

For further details on the use of the documents and to submit comments on the documents, please the Senior Capital Works Engineer at roadstandards@act.gov.au

The ACT Standard Drawings support the Municipal Infrastructure Design Standards and Technical Specifications. The Standard Drawings have been designed to be read in conjunction with the relevant referenced Municipal Infrastructure Standards (MIS) and Municipal Infrastructure Technical Specifications (MITS).

The Standard Drawings provide detailed pictorial guidance for ACT civil assets, and reflects the most up-to-date industry practice.

The design of and construction of municipal assets in the ACT must be in accordance with the Municipal Infrastructure Design Standards and Technical Specifications. Where any differences in practice exist between the Standard Drawings and the Municipal Infrastructure Standard, the later will prevail.
