AbstractClimatic data is one of the most important inputs required in any road design. The historical information being currently relied upon for pavement design may soon lose its significance due to the expected global climate change. The broad objective of the study was to determine and simulate future climate change for road sub-grades in the southern African region, with a view to developing new pavement design parameters in order to protect the pavement infrastructure.
