Evaluation and analysis of Botswana gravel road condition for district transportation networks monitoring

    Abstract

    Gravel roads are majorly affected by deterioration which manifests as loss of gravel materials due to traffic and environmental conditions. District Road Maintenance Managers are faced with competing investment demands to maintain gravel road networks in the best condition due to inadequate intelligent techniques of evaluating the roadway performance. The aim of evaluating the road network performance is to reduce the rate of deterioration so that maintenance interventions could be extended. Road condition data is a precursor for road monitoring and is collected on a periodic basis by road authorities to assist in transportation planning. The primary objective of this paper was to evaluate and analysis the trend of Botswana gravel road condition which best captures the effects of gravel road condition influencing factors. This was achieved by carrying out exploratory statistical analysis. Gravel road condition data were collected through the Botswana Roads Department covering 2002, 2005 and 2008 for Botswana district gravel road networks. The variables required for the analysis were clustered and pre-processed to determine their suitability. The analysis results gave a broad overview of the extent to which gravel road condition trends lend credence to their usefulness in district transportation networks monitoring in Botswana.
