Road Maintenance Condition 2005 in UK
London, United Kingdom – The Department for Transport has 2006-04-20 published National Statistics on the condition of roads and footways in England and Wales in 2005.
The 2005 National Road Maintenance Condition Survey (NRMCS) report presents information on both the surface condition and structural condition of roads. Surface condition is measured using a visual survey of defects and machine based surveys of wet road skidding resistance and the English trunk road network. The structural survey uses a machine to measure the deflection of a road under a standard load.
Key results, extracted from the summary chapter of the full report, are available on the DfT website at:www.dft.gov.uk
