Pavement surface performances have a great influence on road functionality and can affect user's safety, vehicle operational costs, environmental sustainability. The assessment of evolution of pavement surface performance plays a fundamental role in road pavement management and is useful in order to allocation of maintenance resources. In the light of the above, Authors introduced the first results carried out from a two-year monitoring of an experimental road section. Four different dense graded wearing courses were designed with different aggregates: limestone, basalt and expanded clay. Several surface performances were measured by different devices (Skid Tester, Sand Patch Test, Laser Profilometer).
