METHOD STATEMENT
8- Prior Activities
a. The Surveyor will locate and mark all Centerlines for all types .
b. Width and length for all types must be marked.

9- Procedure

A. Road Marking
1. Surfaces to be painted shall be prepared by removing
effervescence, chalk, dust, dirt, grease, oil and release agent and
roughening the surface with fine emery paper to remove glaze.
2. The Surveyor will locate and mark all main Outlines, Spots and
Coordinates for every type of marking and signs. These outlines
will be clearly marked using chalk lines and tapes.
3. Carefully mix and prepare paint materials in accordance with
manufacture direction.
4. Use suitable thinner approved by Paint manufacture and only
within recommended limits.
5. Using Roller Brush, a single coating of white color road marking
paint is applied on to the yellow rubber surface evenly.
6. While painting adjacent areas and installations shall be protected
by using of masking tape or other approved precautionary
measures.
7. When the white color paint is dried, a coat of Yellow Color road
marking paint is applied evenly on the top of the white surfaces.
8. When the single coat of Yellow Paint is dried, another final coat is
applied of Yellow Road Marking and let to dry.
9. Apply paint to an even and fine texture, leave no evidence of
rolling such as laps, irregularity in texture, skid marks.
10. Apply additional coat where under coats, stain or other condition
show in final coat.

METHOD STATEMENT
B. Road Markers
1. Road markers are separate raised metallic or plastic or ceramic units fixed
on the road surface for the purpose of directing traffic according to the
required lane.
2. Apply a mass of material that is approximately three-quarters the size of
the stud to the hole.
3. When the typical stud application method is used, a stud is centered
2.54cm (1 inch) to 5.08cm (2 inches) above the road surface and dropped
onto the hole. With finger pressure only, the stud is pushed down to a
point where a slight bead.
4. The entire stud bottom should be supported by adhesive, and there should
be adhesive surrounding the stud. Be careful not to have excessive
adhesive in front of the stud.
5. The surface on which the lines or reflectors must be installed should be
clean and free from old markers or lines, and the surface must be dry and
free from any oils or lubricants. After ensuring the cleanliness of the
surface and its suitability for placing lines or markers, consistence of the
surface must be reviewed such that it must not be disintegrated or with
large cracks or any other defects which may minimize stability of the lines
or reflectors installed on it. Contractor must supply and install all the work
parts shown on the drawings of the special specifications with the
dimensions, machines and tools required for completing the works
according to requirements.
6. The markers must be fixed at the locations specified on the drawings such
that the distance between markers must not be less than half (0.5) meter
and not more than six (6) meters. For fixing units, holes are first must be
made on the asphalt after cleaning the whole surface, by a driller, the
diameter of the hole must be more than the reflector's stud diameter by
about two (2) to four (4) millimeters, and with a depth of more than the
length of the reflector stud by about two (2) to four (4) millimeters, after

METHOD STATEMENT
that the hole is cleaned and filled with the adhesive used according to
manufacturer's recommendation. The reflectors are fixed by inserting the
fixing shaft to a depth of six (6) centimeters on the asphalt surface. The
fixing stud must be deformed or grooved to resist extraction.
7. The markers are fixed by an adhesive material composed of bituminous.
8. compound or epoxy resin manually mixed. The bituminous adhesive must
not contain rubber polymer, since the high temperature at cohesion may
lead to the adhesive disintegration. The compound must be tested and used
according to the manufacturer's recommendation. Adhesive must be
suitable for application in temperatures range between zero (0°C) to fifty
eight (85°C) degrees Celsius.
9. Equipment installing markers and lines must either be units mounted on
trucks or motor equipped units that the worker rides or manually driven
equipment according to the type of the markers or lines required.
Motorized units which are rode by the worker must be capable of working
in a speed not less than eight (8) Kilometer per hour, but the manual
equipment must be capable of maneuvering in such a way enough for
making the axes lines, lane lines, and side lines, and drawing triangular
pieces, turning lines, pedestrian lines, parking lines, arrows, symbols and
terms. All shapes and lines must be in compliance with the specifications.
