The priority of keeping pavement areas safe and available under all conditions requires information on pavement conditions that is accurate and timely. Managing the maintenance requirements of the airside pavements must be balanced with the operational requirements to ensure that pavement investments are protected to provide long term stability and safety.
This is the basis of pro-active pavement management: to take good decisions on measures to improve the pavement quality and optimize the maintenance cost.

In general, it makes good economic sense to keep a pavement structure in good condition, as the cost for light maintenance is far less than the cost of pavement rehabilitation or reconstruction. It is easier and cheaper to repair the pavement surface in time, so that damage of the pavement structure is avoided. Maintaining a pavement too early or too often can be expensive, but maintaining it too late can be even more expensive.

The key economic benefits of the implementation of a pavement management system are the followings:

  • Optimisation of pavement Maintenance and Rehabilitation (M&R) funding allocation
  • Minimisation of pavement M&R life-cycle costs
  • Justification of pavement M&R funding needs
