Abstract

Maintaining of the roadway infrastructure takes great amount of time and money, big amount of money is
invested in road maintenance to ensure the mobility of people and goods. However, deteriorations of road condition
affect the quality of surface riding and can also represent an increased safety hazard to the users, leading to more
accidents, with their associated human and property costs. Thus identify maintenance needs will result in control costs.
Maintenance is essential to preserve and enhance economic and social benefits. The researches focused on the basic
science of GIS and tried to use it for road networks maintenance. Indeed before adopting road maintenance programs to
ensure these roads are in good condition all the times, good GIS database is essential to ensure maintenance is done in
effective manner. Therefore, set of Spatial and attribute information of road network such as road name, road length,
road geometry, classification of road whether it is local, residential collector or arterial, number of lanes, pavement
width, rating and type of pavement, maintenance status and history and current condition of road should collect to
develop such relational database. This database will be useful for ease of analyses and ease of visual and graphical
displays of results. Integration of using GIS with pavement and other roadway maintenance and with improving highway
safety lead to enhance decision making process and save time and money in future, so it is recommended that use a GIS
in every transportation agencies.
