Marginal costs for wear and tear attributable to heavy vehicles inherent in "Effektsamband 2000"
Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute.
2003 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [sv]

It is argued that the typically delayed change to the worse for subsequent

users of a road, initiated by a passing heavy vehicle, is a function of the

damage caused by the strains and stresses from that heavy vehicle and the

subsequent maintenance actions taken by the road agency. Therefore, marginal

costs caused by the heavy vehicle cannot be assessed without investigating

the maintenance strategies used by the road agency. We investigate the

functional relationships given in the Swedish National Road Administration's

Effektsamband 2000 documents with respect to inherent marginal costs of wear

and tear. It is argued in some detail, why the models utilized in the

Effektsamband 2000 documents should not be used for deriving these marginal
