14.0 INTRODUCTION
A typical section through a pavement is shown in the following sketch ( not toscale )In some type of construction some layers maybe combined.
14.0.1 Foundation
Foundation provides uniform support to the pavement through itslife so that maintenance operation is confined to the upper level of thepavement.

i. Sub-grade either natural soil or material placed to formembankment.ii. Capping – on sub-grade with a low CBR, a capping layer is required provide working. Platform on whichsub-base construction can proceed withminimum intersection from wet whether aminimize effect at weak sub-grade on roadperformance.
14.0.2 Sub-base
This layer forms the upper of the pavement foundation andprovides a regulated working platform at a consistent strength on which totransport, place and compact the bound layers of pavement.
14.0.3 Road Base
Road base is a main structural element that purposes to spreadinduced by repeated wheel loads over the foundation and to with standinternal stresses without excessive deformation.
14.0.4 Surfacing
Surfacing is done in order to provide acceptable running surface of adequate skid resistance and to reduce water penetration to underlyinglayer.
