KEY CHALLENGES FOR THE FUTURE OF PAVEMENT MANAGEMENT

These closing remarks to the Third International Conference on Managing Pavements address key challenges for the future of pavement management. The biggest challenge is seen as the challenge to advance, and it is suggested that this be considered the theme for the next conference. The areas in which quantum advances are needed are pointed out. Another key challenge identified is to retain pavement management as a distinct entity. The dangers of losing sight of the importance of the technical underpinnings of pavement management and of pavement management being submerged in the broader spectrum of asset management are pointed out. Conference participants and especially younger people coming into this field are challenged to seize the opportunities that these challenges represent and advance the process, technology, and use of pavement management.
