Andrew,
               Look at Green Grid solutions, they would probably come up with 
something as they have developed an angled bracket for ramps, not the 
cheapest system but robust and durable and can be tarmacked.

Subject: Ramps/Bridges over tree roots in pavement

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?

Thanks,
