Abstract
The maintenance of roads is critical for ensuring safe and efficient transportation. In particular, low volume roads, which have lower traffic volumes than highways and major roads, are often neglected in terms of maintenance. However, even though they may not experience heavy traffic, low volume roads are still susceptible to failures and defects that can compromise their integrity and safety. In the Nagpur region, there are many low volume roads that are in need of maintenance. In order to ensure that these roads are properly maintained, it is important to study the failures and defects that are present on them, as well as their possible causes. By identifying the root causes of these issues, it is possible to develop effective maintenance strategies that prioritize repairs based on severity and current condition. Some common causes of failures and defects on low volume roads include poor drainage, inadequate road construction, and heavy vehicle traffic. These issues can result in cracks, potholes, and other damage that can cause safety hazards. By conducting regular inspections of these roads, it is possible to identify these issues early and prioritize repairs based on their severity and potential impact on road safety. To ensure the safety and maintenance of low volume roads like Godhnai Road in Nagpur, our thesis focuses on identifying and addressing failures and defects. By conducting a thorough study of the root causes of these issues and suggesting effective maintenance strategies, we can prioritize repairs based on severity and current condition.
