The Winter Model : Stage 1 (English)
Ice and snow on roads and streets cause problems for road-users, requiring maintenance actions such as snow-ploughing, salting and sanding. Such actions influence road safety, accessibility, vehicle costs and the environment, involving heavy expenses for the road administrators. Consequently, it is important to develop effective strategies and methods for maintenance actions and to produce knowledge of the effects of different winter standards for road users and road administrators, as well as society in general. The aim of this project is to create a Winter Model (Winter Maintenance Management System, WMMS). The project began in 2001 and has financial support up to 2005. This report is a summary of the achievements in stage 1, during 2 001 to 2003. Stage 2 will be carried out in 2004 to 2005.
