The performance of pavement depends on the choices made during construction. The quality of the materials, the thickness of the layers and the moisture conditions all have an impact on the life of the pavement. To ensure quality, it is essential to have skilled workers and quality control during construction.
If the conditions and qualities are taken into consideration in advance, the pavement can last for many decades without requiring full reconstruction. Even if the pavement is well constructed, it will still need basic maintenance. It is very important to schedule the maintenance to be carried out at a specific time. The cost of repairing the pavement will go up to at least four times if the pavement has deteriorated into a poor condition because of a lack of maintenance.
