This paper was presented at Session 23 - Pavement performance. It is concerned with the conditions under which unsealed gravel road shoulders are effectively impermeable to pavement edge infiltration. Simple hydrological analyses are used to show how the surface condition of the shoulder, the properties of the shoulder material and regional climate affect the probability of water penetration through the shoulder into the pavement. The results are applied to typical locations in tropical Australia. (TRRL)
