Although the number of heavy vehicles within the traffic stream is only a small percentage, their impact is prominent. Heavy vehicles impose physical and psychological effects on surrounding traffic flow because of their length and size (physical) and acceleration/deceleration (operational) characteristics. Prior to these issues, this study is conducted to investigate the seriousness of road pavement deterioration and to evaluate the Level of Services (LOS) of the facilities to accommodate traffic demand of heavy vehicle for both present condition (2018) and future forecast condition (2020). This study was conducted by using visual observation survey and traffic volume survey. To achieve this, Federal Road 3 was chosen as study location. There will be two identified locations which is link to east coast region for Station 1 and link to port for Station 2. Then, data obtained from the sites were analyzed using road rating assessment method and operational performance analysis. The result revealed that the disability level and road rating for Station 1 was ( rating A : very satisfactory ) and (rating C : less satisfactory) for Station 2. While for operational performance analysis the result revealed that LOS obtain at Station 1 in present condition is LOS C while for future condition is LOS D. Comparing to Station 2, the both result obtain for present and future conditions show LOS A.
