This report provides a summary of activities completed during 2015–16 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 in?service pavement test sites across Australia.

The report presents a summary of the LTPP/LTPPM current conditions, performance trends over the monitoring period, a brief summary of the maintenance activities undertaken during the period and a proposed work plan for 2016–17.
