Inspection and Maintenance of Roadways



Highways and roads are the essential means of transportation between towns, and they play a significant part in integrating economic activity into everyday life. The general standard of road building needs to be improved in order to reduce the amount of time that roads are closed for maintenance tasks.

The analysis and design of pavement are key components of this training course on inspection and maintenance of roads, with an emphasis on the creation of connotations in practical design scenarios. Delegates should be informed on the most recent pavement design approach when the course is completed.

Course Objectives:

At the end of this course the participants will be able to: 

  • Differentiate between the various pavement varieties.
  • Sorting the dirt into AASHTOO categories
  • Create the warm asphaltic mixture.
  • Control the pavement maintenance and repair program.

Targeted Audience:

  • Civil Engineer
  • Civil Technician
  • Structural Engineer
  • Geo-technical Engineer
