PERFORMANCE ASPECTS AND MAINTENANCE STRATEGIES FOR CONCRETE PAVEMENTS ON MAJOR ROUTES IN NEW SOUTH WALES . 15TH ARRB CONFERENCE, DARWIN, NORTHERN TERRITORY, 26-31 AUGUST 1990; PROCEEDINGS PARTS 1 TO 7

In recent years there has been a significant increase in the construction of concrete (rigid) pavements in NSW, both on our major highways and urban and municipal networks. Concrete roads have been constructed in varying configurations from single and dual lane carriageways in municipal and urban networks to six lane dual carriageway formations. Three major and heavily trafficked roads on which concrete pavements has been constructed in NSW are the SH2 Hume Highway (Sydney/Melbourne), F3 Freeway (Sydney/Newcastle) and the SH3 Federal Highway (Sydney/Canberra). At the time of writing, a total of about 700 trafficked lane kilometres involving some 20 major paving contracts has been completed on the above highways and freeway under private contract to the Roads and Traffic Authority of New South Wales. This paper examines the performance in general terms of this road inventory, and in more detail from slab-by-slab visual surveys involving some 70,000 slabs; the data is analysed and discussed in relation to actual and potential rehabilitation of slabs with various conditions of distress followed by a description of repair and maintenance techniques used by the Authority in managing its concrete pavements.
