This paper was presented at session 17 - pavement management systems 2. In 1977-78 the city of Brisbane will spend $14.5M on maintaining, strengthening and improving other existing roads. To produce the best results from the expenditure of about $15M per annum on over 4000km of roads, of very varied quality and use, spread non-uniformly over the 1000 km2 of the city requires the formulation and implementation of a detailed road management system. A system was developed for recording the observable physical features of roads, using electronic data processing. The next step was to standardise the description of defects in roads and develop a standard method of evaluation usable by sub-professional staff with a high degree of reliability. Projected future system development includes the integration of computerised maintenance costing (still in the development stage) with the historic record of road deterioration. This will allow the prediction of road improvement needs. (TRRL)
