To AS 4970 Section 3. As per the Australian Standards AS 4970-2009 Protection of trees on development sites the tree protection zone (TPZ) is the principal means of protecting trees on sites where development is to occur. The TPZ is a combination of the root area and crown area requiring protection. It is an area isolated from construction disturbance, so that the tree remains viable. The radius of the TPZ is calculated for each tree by multiplying its DBH x 12. E.g. DBH is 0.5m x 12 = 6m radius (TPZ = 6m measured from the centre of the trunk at ground level.) If the proposed encroachment is greater than 10% into the TPZ or SRZ an Arborist must demonstrate that the tree(s) would remain viable. Once proposed changes or designs of the site are completed the project Arborist may need to re-inspect selected trees to ensure the trees are adequately protected. The purpose of this is to determine the potential impact on trees proposed to be retained. Structural Root Zone (SRZ): A structural root zone area of a tree is required for tree stability. Using Australian Standards AS 4970-2009 Protection of trees on development sites the structural root zone area can be calculated when major encroachment into a TPZ is proposed. This zone considers a tree’s structural stability only and not the root zone required for a tree’s health and long-term viability, which is usually a much larger area. (As cited by AS 4970-2009) An indicative SRZ radius can be determined from the trunk diameter measured immediately above the buttress using the following formula. SRZ radius = (D x 50)0.42 x 0.64 or using the following guide from AS 4970-2009. Eg. Diameter at root flare is 0.8m (red circle) and using the graph below a 3m SRZ radius is required. This is measured from the centre of the trunk at ground level. Key considerations to be noted by the Contractor when constructing near trees: - More than 90% of trees’ roots are located in the upper 1.0m of soil depth and tree roots generally

extend well beyond the canopy spread of the tree. - Machinery and vehicle movements in proximity to trees and the stock piling of building materials

beneath trees can damage both tree roots and the lower sections of the canopy. - Stock piling of building materials beneath trees can damage both tree roots and the lower sections

of the canopy. - Where trees are retained it is crucial that contractors and sub-contractors are informed of the likely

extent of tree roots and the potential damage to roots and lower branches from the construction of infrastructure too close to trees.

Key actions to be undertaken by the Contractor when constructing near trees: General: The Contractor is to ensure all contractors and sub-contractors are informed of the likely extent of tree roots and the potential damage to roots and lower branches from the construction of infrastructure too close to trees. Fencing: - Tree Protection Fencing is erected around each tree or groups of trees to prevent damage to

canopies and the root zone, where practical. Where this is not practical the Contractor is to nominate another method of protection.

Harmful materials: Conform to the following: - Machinery and vehicle movements in TPZs of trees to be retained are to be minimised. - Stock piling of building materials in TPZs of trees to be retained is not permitted. - Keep the area within the dripline free of construction material and debris. - Do not place bulk materials and harmful materials under or near trees. - Do not place spoil from excavations against tree trunks. - Prevent wind-blown materials such as cement from harming trees and plants. Damage: Prevent damage to tree bark. Do not attach stays, guys and the like to trees. - Where damaged, roots are to be cleanly cut using a hand saw or secateurs. An Arborist is to be

advised if more than 3 x 30mm diameter roots are cut on any tree which is being retained to ensure the trees remain low risk and structurally stable.

Work under trees: Do not remove topsoil from, or add topsoil to, the area within the dripline of the trees. Soil levels around trees out to the TPZ radius are not to be raised or lowered unless otherwise documented. Excavation: Minimise period of excavation under tree canopies.

- When clearing the site and removing overburden, excavators should be fitted with a flat edge bucket and a spotter employed to check for tree roots.

Hand methods: Use hand methods to locate, expose and cleanly remove the roots on the line of excavation. If it is necessary to excavate within the drip line, use hand methods so that root systems are intact and undamaged. Roots: Do not cut tree roots exceeding 50 mm diameter. Where it is necessary to cut tree roots, use cutting methods that do not excessively disturb the remaining root system. Immediately after cutting, water the tree and apply a liquid rooting hormone to stimulate the growth of new roots. Backfilling: Backfill excavations around tree roots. Place the backfill in layers of 300 mm maximum depth and compacted to a dry density similar to that of the original or surrounding soil. Do not backfill around tree trunks to a height greater than 200 mm above the original ground surface. Immediately after backfilling, thoroughly water the root zone surrounding the tree. Backfill material: - Mix proportions (topsoil:well-rotted composts) by volume: 3:1. - Neutral pH value. - Free from weed growth and harmful materials. Compacted ground: Do not compact the ground or use skid-steel vehicles under the tree dripline. If compaction occurs, give notice. Watering: Water trees as necessary, including where roots are exposed at ambient temperature more than 35°C. And to minimise stresses upon the trees to be retained the Contractor is to provide supplementary watering to the retained trees once per week with added wetting agent, approximately 600 – 1,000 litres per tree is required.

2.3 COMPLETION Clean up Progressive cleaning: Keep the work included in the contract clean and tidy as it proceeds and regularly remove from the site waste and surplus material arising from execution of the work, including any work performed during the defects liability period or the plant establishment period.

3.2 PLACING BASE AND SUBBASE General Weak surfaces: Do not place material on a surface that is weakened by moisture and is unable to support, without damage, the construction plant required to perform the works. Spreading: Spread material in uniform layers without segregation. Moisture content: Maintain wet mixed materials at the required moisture content before and during spreading. Add water to dry mixed materials through fine sprays to the entire surface of the layer after spreading, to bring the material to the required moisture content. Compacted layer thickness: 200 mm maximum and 100 mm minimum. Provide layers of equal thickness in multilayer courses. Joints General: Plan spreading and delivery to minimise the number of joints. Offset joints in successive layers by a minimum of 300 mm. Start of shift: Remix last 2 m of previous days' work for continuity of compaction.

3.4 BASE AND SUBBASE COMPACTION General Construction operation: Compact each layer of fill to the required depth and density, as a systematic construction operation. Unstable areas: If unstable areas develop during rolling or are identified by proof rolling, open up, dry back and recompact, to the requirements of this worksection. If dry back is not possible, remove for the full depth of layer, dispose of and replace with fresh material. Minimum relative compaction table Item description Minimum dry density ratio (modified

compaction) to AS 1289.5.2.1 Subbase 95% Base 98% Compaction requirements General: Apply uniform compactive effort over the whole area to be compacted, until the required density is achieved or until failure is acknowledged. If failure is acknowledged, conform to Rectification. Equipment: Use rollers appropriate to the materials and compaction requirements documented. Moisture content General: During spreading and compaction, maintain material moisture content within the range of -2% to +1% from the optimum moisture content (modified compaction). Spraying: Use water spraying equipment to distribute water uniformly, in controlled quantities, over uniform lane widths. Dry back: Allow materials to dry to 60 to 80% of the optimum moisture content before applying the seal or wearing course.

3.2 SURFACING Spreading Conditions: Place asphalt surfacing in dry weather on dry pavement surface, at minimum pavement temperature of 10˚C. Operations: Spread the mix in layers covering the full width of the pavement, or in the case of carriageways and wide pavements, in lanes of 3 m wide minimum. Place layers in adjoining lanes to the same compacted thickness. Self-propelled paving machine spreading: To AS 2150 clause 12.2. Hand spreading: To AS 2150 clause 12.3. Average thickness tolerance: - Thickness > 50 mm: ± 10% of total thickness to a maximum of ± 15 mm. Frequently check thickness: Measure uncompacted and compacted layer in conformance with AS 2150. Direction of placement: To ensure finished levels are achieved and the path is free draining. Protection Adjacent surfaces: Protect adjacent surfaces during spraying. Freshly spray surfaces: Protect from contamination. Joints Standard: To AS 2150 clause 12.6. Requirement: Provide joints that are well bonded and sealed, with a smooth riding surface across the joint. Minimise the number of joints. Transverse joints: Provide if the operation is stopped for more than 20 minutes or if pavement temperature falls below 90°C. Provide a straight vertical face for the full layer depth and offset in adjoining spreader runs and layer to layer by 1 m minimum. Longitudinal joints: Offset joints from layer to layer by 150 mm minimum. Longitudinal joint locations in the wearing course to coincide with the lane line. Edges: Form exposed edges of each spreader run while hot to a straight line with a dense face inclined between vertical and 45°. Cold joints: Tack coat the surface of cold longitudinal and transverse joint before placing the adjoining asphalt. Abutting structures Level: Place asphalt surfacing to match the level of abutting surfaces such as kerbs or adjoining pavement as for longitudinal and transverse joints. Fill: Fill spaces left unfilled between the spreader run, abutting edges with sufficient surfacing material to the required height. Matched junctions Requirement: Where asphalt is to match an existing pavement, or other fixture, place the surfacing material to provide a smooth riding surface across the junction as follows: - Remove existing pavement or taper the thickness of layers. - Terminate layers at a 20 mm deep and 400 mm wide chase cut into the existing pavement. - Coarse particles: Remove from a layer of tapering thickness using hand raking. Tack coat: Where the thickness of the layer tapers to less than twice the nominal size of the mix, tack coat the surfacing area at a uniform application rate. Existing sealed pavement: Trim the seal to a neat edge. Compaction Trimming: Before compaction, correct any irregularities in line or level. Trim lane edges to a straight line. Rolling: Compact asphalt surfacing uniformly as soon as it will support rollers without undue displacement, and complete rolling while the mix temperature is above 90°C. Density tests: Perform a field bulk density test for each test site from one of the following: - On a core sample taken from the asphalt surfacing layer. - If the nominal layer thickness is 50 mm or greater, measured in situ using a nuclear gauge.

Sample preparation: To AS/NZS 2891.2.1 and AS/NZS 2891.2.2, as appropriate. Number of test per lot: To AS 2150, 6 tests per lot for simple/small works. Nuclear gauge tests: To AS/NZS 2891.14.2. Density criteria: Mean density: Generally 92 to 95 %

3.3 TESTING General Tests: Perform tests of the type and frequency necessary to control the materials and processes used in the construction of the works and as documented. Process control tests Records: Show the results of process control tests using control charts or graphs displayed on site in a readily accessible location and updated daily. Methods: Use wet preparation methods where applicable. Sampling: Timing and location to AS/NZS 2891.1.1. Compliance assessment tests Timing: Obtain material samples at the time of delivery to the site. Location: Obtain sample from selected sites within designated test lots, consisting of surfacing areas placed, and/or compacted in one day. Test lots to be uniform in material properties and density.

3.4 COMPLETION Non-conforming asphalt Requirement: Remove asphalt surfacing, including defective joints and finish, to the full depth of the layer, and replace with conforming pavement. Joints: Treat edges of remedial work as documented for cold joints. Reinstating adjacent surfaces Requirement: Reinstate surfaces next to new pavements and associated elements. Where an existing flexible road pavement has been disturbed, trim it back to a straight edge 250 to 300 mm from and parallel to the new concrete for the full depth of the slab. Backfill with asphalt rammed solid, using suitable rammers. Removal: Dispose of any residual or non-conforming material to a location off site. Finished pavement properties Tolerances: Make sure finished pavement levels, thickness and shape conforms to TOLERANCES. Non-conforming surfaces: Where tolerances are exceeded, remove and replace surface. Cleaning Spraying equipment: Flushing, if required, is to be contained. Return waste in a container to the depot for disposal. Excess material: Sweep any excess material away from traffic lanes and remove. Excavated material: Remove from site.
