The Draft COTO Standard Specifications for Road & Bridge Works for State Road Authorities
March 25 - March 29
The existing COLTO Standard Specifications for Road & Bridge Works for State Road Authorities has been in use since 1998. A need was identified by the industry to revise this document due to new developments, outdated requirements, sophisticated equipment and to keep up with international standards and the need to create more job opportunities in the industry.
A needs analysis study identified that the existing COLTO Standard Specifications was not feasible for updating but to revise the entire document. Provision for 20 new chapters was therefore made in the new draft COTO Standard Specifications for Road & Bridge Works.
