Pavement Design Guidelines, PDG1: Pavement Design Guideline for Low Volume Sealed Roads

This guideline was developed by the Kenya Ministry of Transport Infrastructure, Housing and Urban Development

Abstract

This Low volume sealed roads design guideline was developed by the Kenya Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure, Housing and Urban Development through the Materials Testing and Research Department (MTRD) with technical assistance of TRL Ltd under the AFCAP programme funded by the UK Department for International Development.

To achieve the government’s set objectives, it is necessary to adopt appropriate pavement design methods and related materials specifications that lead to the development of environmentally optimised road designs, which minimise design, construction and maintenance costs. The Guideline takes account of best practice developments in low volume roads technology that have evolved both regionally and internationally in the past few decades. The development of the Guideline was undertaken in close consultation with the stakeholders in the roads sector.

This output is part of the Applied Research on Rural Roads and Transport Services through Community Access Programmes in Africa and Asia (AFCAP2 and AsCAP)
