Municipal Infrastructure Technical Specifications (MITS)

The Municipal Infrastructure Technical Specifications (MITS) utilise the AusSpec document framework. This framework provides a level of design consistency across all local government jurisdictions in Australia, and reflects the most up-to-date industry practice. A number of local and regional government jurisdictions have adopted the AusSpec document framework as the primary technical framework for their design standards.

The ACT Government has adopted the AusSpec document framework. Each of the MITS documents provide detailed ACT specific technical construction guidance for civil and open space assets as well as references to a number of relevant construction documents. The MITS documents have been designed to be read in conjunction with these relevant referenced construction documents.

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

For documents related to design refer to the Municipal Infrastructure Standards (MIS) website. For standard drawings refer to the Municipal Infrastructure Standard Drawings.
