The purpose of this discussion note is to consider the selection of an appropriate maintenance/re-construction strategy. In an ideal world the relationships between the inputs to a road (by way of initial construction and subsequent maintenance work) and the condition of that road, and also between road condition and road user outputs (by way of safety, speed of travel and vehicle operating costs), would be known making the analysis of alternative strategies reasonably straight forward. In the real world things are far from perfect and, therefore, we must consider the situation where the basic relationships are not known with certainty. (Author/TRRL)
