FWD inspection and road network photography

Orthophoto

An inspection of the Falling Weight Reflectometer is scheduled for Friday the 9th. A group of Estonian surveyors are scheduled to stay in Saint Lucia for the two first weeks of March. They will conduct a survey with a laser and 360-degree cameras to get orthographic photos of the road and the surroundings. The accuracy is then higher than with aerial photos. The survey is done for A-, B-, and C-roads. The images will take around 3 terabytes of data and they will be used to get pavement type, road width, cracking, potholes, edge break and general condition class. Additionally, retaining walls, guardrails and traffic signs could be identified.
