In India there is a pressing need for an efficient system to plan highway rehabilitation and maintenance. A two year project has started in March 1993 to develop a Pavement Management System in four states: Bihar, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. This project is the first World Bank sponsored consulting contract using overseas consultant for over twenty years. The goal of the project is to implement a practical PMS to support maintenance funding. State of the art technology and systems are being applied and at the end of the project future development will be in the hands of the state Public Work Departments. Eventually the four states will be serviced by one of the most modern and up to date systems of the world.
