Abstract: Urban roads are the major assets for infrastructure development of a country. Expressways, arterial roads, sub arterial roads and collector roads comes in urban roads. These roads are the mostly busiest roads. It needs to find out surface characteristics of these roads as these roads connects residential areas to commercial areas and to some other major places in the cities. Therefore it is very important to maintain these roads frequently because these are subjected to heavy traffic loads and in monsoon or poor drainage, these urban roads deteriorates at faster rate. So these roads requires timely maintenance and cost rehabilitation. A tool which can access the deterioration of roads is Pavement Condition Index (PCI). PCI gives the rates the condition of the surface of a road network from 0 to 5, where 0 is the worst and 5 is the best surface condition of roads. It Measures the type, extent and severity of pavement surface distresses (typically cracks and rutting) and also the smoothness and ride comfort of the roads. With using this tool, one can determine the condition of road and give the maintenance frequently which makes it cost effective. Therefore, this paper aims at bringing the methodology used for various surveys like data collection of roads which include length and width of road, surface distresses and roughness of the road which collectively used to determine the Overall Pavement Condition Index (OPCI) of roads and accordingly maintenance strategy is provided for the given section.
Keywords: PCI, pothole, ravelling, rutting, cracks, traffic loads, OPCI
