Newcastle Public Works Standards Update

The City of Newcastle's Public Works Department is currently revising the 2000 Newcastle Public Works Standards and your comments are welcome. The Public Works Standards contain design criteria, construction requirements and guidelines for municipal construction within the City. The proposed updates will:

  • Revise a number of unnecessarily restrictive design requirements (e.g., residential driveway grades, joint use driveway tract geometry);
  • Bring some standards in line with locally accepted or national requirements (entering sight distance, ADA compliance);
  • Provide flexibility necessary for design of high density projects on constrained sites (use of hammerhead turnarounds, relaxed roadway geometric criteria)
