NEW PAVEMENT RESEARCH: (1) ASPHALT OVERLAY DESIGN CRITERIA FOR STREETS AND (2) PAVEMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENT. FIFTH NATIONAL LOCAL GOVERNMENT ENGINEERING CONFERENCE, SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, 24-29 SEPTEMBER, 1989

With the publication of its Structural Design Guide for Residential Street Pavements early this year, the Australian Road Research Board successfully achieved its objective of giving Local Government a scientifically based and consistent approach to street pavement design. Dependent upon funds becoming available, two related research projects are to follow on from the publication of the Design Guide: (1) Asphalt overlay design procedures for lowly trafficked roads and streets; and (2) Pavement management systems for local government. This paper attempts to define the state of the art for both project items. Current status with Overlay Design is readily described since little work has been done in the past to derive either tolerable deflection curves for traffic loading less than 10**5 equivalent standard axles, or overlay thickness design curves for street pavements. The state of the art regarding Pavement Management Systems for Local Governments is based on the results of a survey carried out amongst Australian Councils last year. Other details on the two projects are described herein, in the form of aims, costs and benefits. (Author/TRRL)
