Road and Bridge Management Systems
Road Management System and Bridge Management System are up and running. The systems will be used for visualisation and reporting of the data as well as for maintenance planning and analysis.
International Roughness Index for paved ABC roads
Traffic counting results
The first version of maintenance standards has been created. The idea of the maintenance standards is to standardise the applied maintenance works on the road network depending on the surface type, traffic volume, surface condition (IRI) and bearing capacity. The maintenance standards are used in maintenance planning when needed periodic maintenance and rehabilitation works are identified.
Pavement Distress Inventory
It was thought that there are some 100 bridges in Saint Lucia before the RMMS project started. During the inspections it has been found out that the total number of bridges is over 220. Bridge inventory inspection is on-going and should be finished by the end of July after which maintenance planning of bridges can start.
IRI by roadclass and zone
International Roughness Index is a key indicator of road surface condition. The main road network (ABC roads) has been mostly completed and the initial results show that the main roads are in decent condition while the collector roads are mostly in poor condition. Later, when maintenance plans are created the IRI of each road and segment will be used in prioritisation of road works.
