A smoothly functioning road network is key to sustained success in modern economies. The quality and completeness of a transport network, as well as how well it’s managed, determine its contribution to a successful economy. This comes at a price - meeting increasing demands and requirements poses significant challenges to managers of road assets. The need for efficient use of funds requires continuous improvement, in management and in maintenance of assets. Proper maintenance is therefore very important and is affected by the available budget to a large extent.
