ROAD PERFORMANCE STUDIES IN COASTAL AND WESTERN QUEENSLAND USING THE NETWORK SURVEY VEHICLE RUTTING DATA

The purpose of this paper is to record how the 2001 rutting data collected by the Network Survey Vehicle has been used to analyse road rutting performance in Western Queens1and and in Mackay District. All pavements analysed are on non-expansive soils so that rutting values measured are purely due to pavement and seal performance and are not influenced by edge heave effects as occurs on expansive soils. Although performance is a measure of condition over time, a method has been developed to use the rutting data from a single year as an indication of rutting performance. Generally speaking, the rutting data collected by the Network Survey Vehicle is considered to be reliable and very useful, however a number of recommendations have been made on how to improve the data collection and analysis processes. These and other key points are discussed in the paper, and are summarized in Appendix c. (a) For the covering entry of this conference, please see ITRD abstract no. E208315.
