This report provides a summary of activities completed during 2014–15 for the Austroads long term pavement performance monitoring project.

Austroads has funded the long-term pavement performance study since late 1994. The project monitors the structural and functional performance of 19 in?service pavement test sites across Australia.

The report includes a summary of the LTPP/LTPPM current conditions and performance trends over the monitoring period, a brief summary of the latest development of the probabilistic RD modelling with SIPs, and an overview of the proposed 2015-16 work program.
