Concrete pavements are in widespread use throughout the world but have been little used for roads in New Zealand. Historically, New Zealand engineers have been constrained to use the cheapest first cost options in developing the national road network in a sparsely populated country and this has discouraged the adoption of concrete.
The New Zealand road network has matured. Traffic densities and hence pavement costs have grown considerably. Economic efficiency in pavement design is still just as vital as ever but achieving it now requires a more sophisticated approach. Instead of simply minimising the first cost, it is also necessary to consider the long-term user and maintenance benefits of the various alternative pavement types available.
The modern concrete pavement has been improved and now provides significant road user benefits as well as the traditionally recognised advantages of great durability and lower maintenance costs.
The Transfund New Zealand Pavement Evaluation Manual is the accepted framework for economic calculation of the merits of road works. This Technical Report provides specific guidelines and commentary on the application of the principles and procedures of the Project Evaluation Manual (incorporating amendment No. 6, 2002), to the problem of calculation of the relative merits of concrete pavements and the competing flexible pavement options.
