The decision to continue with maintenance or to strengthen essentially depends on the condition of the road and its residual bearing capacity; the evaluation of the road is thus the starting-point for strengthening activities. Evaluation consists of the following main operations: the study of records, visual examination, scanning and the formulation of a diagnosis. The residual life-span is evaluated from the typical deflection. The remedy generally chosen is resurfacing the existing road with one or more layers of bituminous material after clearing away damaged part if required. (TRRL)
