Good highways are so important with every phase of our daily activities that it is almost
impossible to imagine what life would be like without them. We depend on highways for
the movement of goods, for travel to and from work, for services, functioning of our
complex society. The planning, design, construction operation, and maintenance of
highways depend largely on the efforts of the highway engineer, who must translate the
desires of the people for better highway transportation into physical being which is
involves the integration of vehicle, driver, and pedestrian characteristics to improve the
safety and capacity of streets and highways. Maintenance is work such as pavement
patching, repair, and other actions necessary to maintain the roadway pavement at a
desired level of serviceability. Maintenance also involves record keeping and data
management for work activities and project needs, as well as analyses of maintenance
activities to determine that they are carried out in the most economical manner. The
work of the civil engineer in the area of maintenance involves redesign of existing
highway sections, economic evaluation of maintenance programs, testing of new
products, and scheduling of manpower to minimize delay and cost. Hence, this research
is to studies the highway maintenance works such as prescribing of the defect,
determination of the causes, and damage failure especially on pavement maintenance
and the maintenance cost of rehabilitation along Lebuhraya Utara Selatan Bertam -
Sungai Petani (north). The result of this project shows there are many causes of
pavement defect and the defect can classified into several types. That is means, the
results of the evaluation carried out on the pavement are used to establish the most
appropriate and economical method of rehabilitation.
