Typology 9 – Outstand with surrounding permeable pavement
Outstands with surrounding permeable pavement are suitable to use in streets with kerbside parking and space for a tree to be planted adjacent to the parking bays.
Porous asphalt is installed over structural soil in parking bays. Rainfall and stormwater runoff infiltrate through the asphalt and into the structural soil to increase soil moisture.
