Bridge inspections on the way
The first 12 bridges have been inspected. It is not yet known how many bridges there are in total, but the current estimate is 180. The bridge inspection was slow in the beginning as the future inspectors were trained at the same time. During the first week of inspections the inspection time was reduced from three hours to half an hour.
Traffic counters installed
Ten portable traffic counters have now been installed on the traffic counting locations. The counters will remain for a week on the spot and then they are moved to new locations. Later, the portable counters are complemented with permanent counters and manual traffic counting.
Traffic counter training
Training was given by Metrocount on installation and operation of portable traffic counters. The Ministry has 12 units that will be used for one-week counts on approximately 200 locations. Weekly traffic count data is complemented with manual counts as well as permanent counting in two locations.
