- Rural roads in Madhya Pradesh play an important role in the social and economic development of the state in India. Thus, the maintenance of these rural roads is challenging. For their maintenance (periodic or daily), the funds required are not in abundance, hence to use of resources in proper manner, the detailed strategies for maintenance are required. The present study deals with development of maintenance management system for rural roads in the state of Madhya Pradesh. There are two ways in which pavement evaluation can be done – one is the Functional Evaluation and other is Structural Evaluation. The pavement distresses and riding comfort i.e., roughness of the roads is considered in functional evaluation whereas structural properties i.e., modulus reaction, pavement deflection etc. of the pavement are considered in structural evaluation. In the present study we have considered functional evaluation in which various pavement distresses are studied which prevails on the roads considered. To conduct the study Four sample roads section in the Indore and Ujjain region were selected. On the selected stretches flexible pavement distresses such as cracking, rutting, pothole and patching data in terms of extent and severity would be collected by visual inspection. In addition, roughness data would be collected along the wheel path using MERLIN. On the selected stretches for a length of 1.0 KM each, the distress and roughness data has been collected and rating was done on the basis of Pavement Condition Index (PCI) and International Roughness Index (IRI) values. On the selected stretches flexible pavement distresses such as cracking, pothole, patching and rutting data in terms of extent and severity would be collected by visual inspection. In addition, roughness data would be collected along the wheel path using MERLIN.
