The World Road Association has identified road maintenance as a key priority for road systems to keep meeting public expectations in all regions of the world. This report is intended to make a persuasive case for appropriate levels of expenditure on road maintenance by demonstrating the economic and social benefits of road maintenance and. Road Maintenance Priority Matrix as a way to maximize the effectiveness of limited road maintenance resources. The use of these levels of service assist with the decision-making process associated with establishing the annual road maintenance work program, responding to emergencies and service requests, selecting projects, and developing budgets. The amount that a Council spends on road maintenance will depend on many factors including the make up & condition of its road network, the climate, the service level provided, and exactly what activities are considered to be road maintenance. The study examined the impacts of labour-based rural road maintenance on accessibility and poverty alleviation in the Umbumbulu community through the use of quantitative methods (specifically a questionnaire survey) and qualitative methods (specifically focus group discussions, ranking exercises, mental mapping and venn/ chapatti diagrams).
