Road Marking Management System: a pre-study
2009 (English)Report (Other academic)
Pavement Management Systems - PMS - are used for the judgement of the need of maintenance of road surfaces. From relevant parameters, like ADT (Average Daily Traffic), lane width, type of stone material, etc., the deterioration of the pavement and the time for repaving can be predicted. This is a valuable tool to the road keeper, used for judgement of necessary maintenance measures. Developing a similar tool concerning road markings would be of great value as road markings, like road surfaces, are worn by the traffic and need regular maintenance. In 2008, a road marking strategy project was initiated in Norway by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) and Rambøll RST. The aim of this project is to ensure high road marking quality to low life-cycle cost (LCC). The project involves a large number of measurements over at least three years, i.e. the performance of road markings is checked using mobile equipment from the year of application and years ahead. Data from the two initial years of this project has been used for giving an example of how a Road Marking Management Models (RMMS) can be developed.
