Here's the result of one "shave" job.

Hi All,

Is anybody aware of any technical guidance for building bridges or ramps
over roots which have severely deformed pavements? The attached photo (if
attachment has worked) will show that this is more than a shave and
resurface job. The pavement rises by around 200mm from the surrounding
levels at its highest point, and the crack on top creates a nice little
trip hazard. Disabled access needs to be maintained, which is tricky, as
the road is already on a gradient.

It is mentioned in this Barlett research report<
https://www.bartlett.com/resources/sidewalk-repair-near-trees.pdf> (
https://www.bartlett.com/resources/sidewalk-repair-near-trees.pdf) but I
wondered if there was anything else?

Does anybody have any experience or examples they would share?
