Nowadays, maintenance operations of the urban infrastructure in Spain are based on a "worst first" approach. Under this approach, pavements showing poor conditions are given higher priority to receive maintenance. In the pavement management field, this approach has widely been recognized as the least effective maintenance strategy. Given this situation, the main objective of this research is to study the information needed to develop an Urban Pavement Management System (UPMS). The proposed system aims to be adaptable to the requirements and characteristics of different cities, as well as to promote the inclusion of sustainability in the maintenance of urban pavements. This study defines the criteria needed for the definition of a sustainable management system and analyzes the economic and technical advantages of such system. The results obtained in this analysis highlight the benefits derived from the implementation of this type of systems, which allows for a better design of maintenance plans and the optimization of available funds for maintenance.
