International Journal of Advances in Scientific Research and Engineering
Road infrastructure is a land transportation infrastructure that affects the development of an area. When infrastructure is damaged, distribution between regions will be disrupted and have an impact on regional economic development, in addition to the inconvenience felt by road users. This condition occurs on provincial roads in Pemalang District which are damaged. Road damage was caused by the passing of the Pemalang-Batang Toll Road construction project so that the volume of vehicles passing
... f vehicles passing exceeded the capacity of the road. The high growth of traffic because economic growth can cause serious problems if it is not balanced with the maintenance and improvement of the quality of existing road facilities and infrastructure.
