This Booklet has been developed by the Government of South Sudan as one of a number of initiatives to help rapidly expand, develop and maintain the Low Volume Road network to provide greatly improved road access and lower the costs of transport for rural communities. It is applicable to earth, gravel and paved roads that may be carrying up to about 300 motor vehicles per day.
The Booklet specifically sets out guidance for road and other authorities and agencies, contractors, local communities, and private road owners on how to maintain road access making the best use of the limited resources available to them. It also advises how it may be possible to mobilise outside resources to enhance the impact of their own initiatives.
The Maintenance activities and codes used in this Booklet are provisional, pending development of National Road Maintenance Specifications.
