SOUTH AFRICAN ROAD FEDERATION and the Engineering Professions Association of Namibia presents the Road Pavement Rehabilitation course in Namibia in February 2019

Course Description

This course is intended and will provide practical guidelines for those involved in the pavement rehabilitation of surfaced roads. It is not intended as a manual on routine road maintenance but for larger rehabilitation projects requiring more sophisticated inputs and design considerations. Construction would also be on a larger scale, most often requiring the use of specialist contractors. Un-surfaced or gravel roads are not covered in these notes as they require special but more routine maintenance work than surfaced roads.

Background

As the road infrastructure of South Africa is becoming older more surfaced roads are approaching the end of their design life and need to be rehabilitated to, at least, preserve part of the investment made in the infrastructure and to provide the road user with an acceptable road network free from hazards. It is accepted that routine road maintenance would be regularly carried out to protect the road and associated road elements from premature deterioration and failure. Even with the best routine maintenance the road pavement and other elements would deteriorate or be damaged in time due to a variety of factors of which the following are the most important:

  • Traffic loading associated deterioration:
  • Routine maintenance strategy.
  • Environmental factors
  • Geometric upgrading for higher traffic volume
