Special Maintenance (S)

As with routine maintenance, special maintenance could be classified as “reactive" roadworks due to unplanned circumstances. These circumstances could be the result of natural phenomena such as flash floods, or damage caused due to accidents.

 

 

Special maintenance are divided into the following works types:

  • NON PAVEMENT (N): This comprises works undertaken to clear a road that has been cut or blocked. Included under here are traffic accident removal, clearing debris, and repairing washout/subsidence.
  • PAVEMENT (P): This normally involves the repair of selected pavement areas that fail due to latent defects, thus enabling the rest of the pavement to achieve it’s anticipated design performance or life.
  • BRIDGE (B): This normally involves the repair of selected bridge elements that fail mostly due to latent defects, thus enabling the rest of the bridge to achieve it’s anticipated design performance or life.
