Presented To

Department of Civil Engineering

ABSTRACT

One of the major problems facing the country is pavement failure. It is the concern of the Institute of Management and Technology (IMT) authorities to carryout a case study of pavement failure along Hillview off ESBS Road Enugu.
The investigation show that the pavement failed both structural and functionally taking into consideration.
The possible cause cure:-
(a) Poor sub-grade & sub-base
(b) Lack of maintenance culture
(c) Poor drainage system 
(d) Poor workmanship
(e) Inaccurate
