COMPARISON OF SKIDDING RESISTANCE VALUES ON TWO MAIN THAI HIGHWAYS WITH VARIOUS AGES

The results are presented of skid resistance measurements obtained with the Portable Skid-Resistance Tester of the Road Research Laboratory. The measurements were made every 4 months since 1972 and two asphaltic concrete surfaced highways. The results indicate that the skid resistance values on both highways are gradually decreasing. Information on traffic, design and use of limestone in surfacing, speed of traffic stream, accident, and pavement roughness is also presented. Minimum design standards for primary highways (rural) and specifications for asphaltic concrete surfacing are set forth, and details are given of the measurement of pavement roughness and skidding tests.
