About the event

A major study of the Regional road network was carried out for the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (DTTAS) in 2018 to determine existing pavement condition and the length and area of Regional roads requiring various types of remedial works. The study compared the results of the 2018 survey with a similar study of the Regional road network carried out in 2011. Extensive use was made of Business Intelligence (BI) and GIS technologies to interrogate and interpret the survey data. Innovative colour graded maps and graphics were produced providing comparisons of condition in 2011 and 2018 and allowing easy visual comparison of the condition of each local authority.

This presentation will cover additional aspects of Pavement Management of Non-National roads in Ireland including development of the DTTAS Pavement Survey Standard, a basis for estimation of backlog needs and costs nationally and locally and future developments in Pavement Management having regard to International experience and practice.
