A heavy vehicle simulator (HVS) was used to evaluate a high-standard crushedstone base pavement near Jan Smuts Airport on Road P157/2. Short sections of the road were rebuilt with improved drainage where the previous pavement had failed due to drainage problems and the settlement of fills. The purpose of the test was to determine whether the rebuilt pavement could carry the expected traffic over the next 20 years and how it would react to the effects of poor drainage conditions.
