Cost 354 – European Harmonization On Performance Indicators For Road Pavements

In 2004 the COST-Action 354 “Performance Indicators for Road Pavements” was initiated by the European intergovernmental scientific network COST (cooperation in the field of science and technology) with the main objective to define uniform European performance indicators and indexes for road pavements. The specification of performance criteria from the perspective of road users and road operators is a key prerequisite for the efficient maintenance and management of road pavements. In the context of the Action single indicators as well as combined indicators are defined for different road networks and pavements taking into consideration functional and structural demands of road pavements as well as demands from the environmental point of view. These performance indicators should build the basis for the economic evaluation within pavement management system (PMS) and public private partnership (PPP) contracts.
