About us

The Pavements team provides expert advice on policy related to pavements and network operations, provides training in pavement-related areas, and develops and manages research. Our goals are to:

  • Develop and implement fit for purpose best practice specifications and guidelines using the most appropriate information from overseas literature and outputs from domestic research.
  • Evaluate the success of the new specifications and guidelines.
  • Provide training to improve the technical capability and ensure that HNO staff are appropriately skilled for the Network Outcome Contract (NOC).
  • Provide technical support and assist in other areas where appropriate in Network Outcomes, the NZ Transport Agency, and the wider industry.


  • View manuals, technical memoranda, and specifications on delineation, drainage, pavements, surfacings, and unsealed pavements in each relevant subject area in this section.
  • Browse general pavements information in the What highways are made of section of the NZ Transport Agency website.
