Falmer Stadium

This football stadium will soon be the home court for Brighton And Hove Albion football club. It has 23,000 seating capacity but later on this can accomodate to up to 30000 seats.

It will be built in a greenfield site however drainage wise it will have no significant impact to the environment for effectively the site will still be greenfield. In other words there will be no additional surface water (rain) outflow to the existing public drainage system and foul water discahrge will be kept to very minimum.

CBR

California Bearing Ratio or CBR is a soil parameter that is very important in road design.

Roads are normally designed in accordance to their category or traffic loading. The first 3 componets of which do not change a lot, i.e. in terms of thickness and grade but the sub-base and the capping layer are dependant on the soil CBR.

Below is a typical tarmac access road construction and a table for sub-base and capping layer with respect to CBR percentage. (just double click to see an enlarged version)
