Abstract : Highway pavement failure and maintenance in extreme conditions of Rajasthan is a critical issue that needs to be addressed to ensure safe and reliable transportation in the region. Rajasthan is known for its extreme weather conditions, including high temperatures, low humidity, and frequent dust storms, which can cause significant damage to highway pavements. This damage can lead to pavement failures, which can increase the risk of accidents and increase maintenance costs. To prevent pavement failure, regular maintenance and repairs are necessary. Preventive maintenance techniques like crack sealing, surface treatment, patching, and resurfacing can help restore the pavement's condition. Regular maintenance activities like cleaning, repairing potholes, and maintaining drainage systems are essential for detecting and addressing pavement damage before it becomes severe. Several rules and regulations govern the maintenance of highways in Rajasthan. The Indian Roads Congress (IRC), National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH), and Rajasthan Public Works Department (PWD) are some of the important bodies that publish standards, guidelines, and regulations related to highway pavement maintenance. These regulations cover aspects like pavement design standards, materials to be used, specifications for maintenance activities, and safety regulations for workers involved in pavement maintenance. In conclusion, addressing highway pavement failure and maintenance in extreme conditions of Rajasthan is essential to promote safe and efficient transportation and reduce maintenance costs. By performing regular maintenance activities and responding quickly to pavement failures, we can prevent accidents and increase the lifespan of the pavement. Adherence to rules and regulations can ensure that highways are constructed and maintained to high standards and can withstand the extreme weather conditions in the state.
