Abstract: The road user in South Africa currently experiences a large gap between gravel and paved roads in terms of the serviceability and standards which are applied. Because of the high coasts associated with current paved road standards, the provision and upgrading of low volume roads in particular is difficult to justify. This document serves as a forerunner to the provision of practical guidelines for the selection of appropriate and more affordable standards over the full spectrum of rural roads. New and existing thoughts on the subject are discussed and recommendations made to this end.
