Abstract: This paper presents a review of Scope of Works and Technical Criteria (SWTC) documents for infrastructure motorway project in New South Wales, Australia and approaches adopted to provide the durability of motorway concrete structures that meet 100 years design life. The paper provides an assessment of the exposure environment, and shows how appropriate designs are achieved by use of field data in the prediction of progress of carbonation. Economical designs that provide the required design life without the need for expensive repairs are achieved provided the parameters used in the prediction models are comparable to field data in the project environment.
