Abstract

: Highway plays a crucial role in the economic and social development of societies, linking rural communities to education, health services and markets. Highways are deteriorating fast due to lack of timely maintenance, leading to higher vehicle operating costs, increasing number of accidents. Huge resources are being spent on the maintenance and development of existing roadways in India to ensure the mobility of people and goods. In this study a rational methodology to allocate resources for different maintenance activities to be carried out on different sections in a road network is proposed. The maintenance priority is based on importance of the road sections, present road conditions, and future road conditions. The methodology proposed in this study is validated by considering the real road network in Vidisha city in the state of Madhya Pradesh. A analysis is carried out to assess the impacts of input parameters in the performance of developed methodology. Three different levels of funds available i.e. 25 %, 50 % and 75 % is considered and results were compared to assess the suitability of the proposed methodology. As a result of the research an adaptable and adoptable sustainable maintenance management system for rural networks is developed to assist local road agencies in developing countries. It is expected that this study will be useful.

Key Words
