the purpose of this study is to conduct a physical survey for distresses analysis of 50 lanes of urban flexible roads and to conduct a comparative study on pavement condition rating methods (PCRM) using IRC method, and Highway preservation system. 50 lanes of urban flexible pavements from all over Pune city are selected as a case study. The lanes are visually surveyed to detect the types, severity and extent of the distresses based on IRC and WDOT guidelines (Distress identification manuals). Firstly the lane wise data base is created. Secondly the severity and extent is determined based on IRC and WDOT (DIM). And thirdly the lane wise Pavement condition index (PCI) values are calculated by the methods of IRC, and HPS. To differentiate between both the methods the correlation analysis has been carried out.
