Aerodrome Design Manual - Part 3 - Pavements (Doc 9157 - Part 3)
The purpose of this manual is to assist States in the implementation of the specifications for proper design of taxiway systems and help ensure their uniform application. Future editions of this manual will be updated to include any experience gained.
A properly designed taxiway system ensures a smooth, continuous flow of aircraft ground traffic, operating at the highest level of safety and efficiency and contributes to optimum aerodrome utilisation. Subsequent to the Fourth Edition in 2005, new specifications on taxiways have been developed based on reliable, demonstrable and scientifically tested information. Revised specifications are expected to significantly improve efficiency, reduce construction and maintenance costs in addition to having a positive impact on the environment.
