Majority of pavements in India are bituminous pavements which are showing early sign of distresses and also require periodic maintenance for strengthening. Now a days focus is on pavements which are maintenance free or having low maintenance and economical than flexible pavements. Concrete pavements are a good alternative to bituminous pavements, these pavement perform for a long term and even have a very low maintenance cost, though the initial cost of these pavements is high when life cycle cost is considered the overall cost of these pavement is less than that of overall cost of bituminous pavements. In the present study, an attempt is made to evaluate the life cycle cost of new bituminous and concrete pavements and even the life cycle cost (LCC) of bituminous overlays and concrete white toppings is being evaluated with the help of net present value method of life cycle cost analysis.

Keywords : LCC, White Topping, Pavement Rehabilitation, Alternative to bituminous pavements, Overlays.
