Report on BEXPRAC

The national road authorities (NRAs) of 13 European countries launched the BEXPRAC survey (Benchmarking of expenditures and practices of maintenance and operation) in an effort to benchmark the performance of their maintenance and operation (M&O) policies within the framework of the Conference of European Directors of Roads (CEDR). The benchmark was to be completed by sharing figures and best practices. This benchmark study included two main modules: A macroscopic or macro module (top-down approach), which sought to: (1) compare the overall costs of operation and maintenance in the participating NRAs for each considered network as a whole, including (depending on data availability) a breakdown of charges per large task blocks (e.g. routine maintenance, routine operation, winter service, traffic management, large repairs, and improvement works); and (2) explain some of the differences by comparing the distinctive profiles of the networks (by applying the same pertinent segmentation for each network and analysing cost sensitivity to network profiles) and the overall levels of service provided. A microscopic or micro module (bottom-up approach), which sought to: (1) compare actual performance levels on a limited range of small-scale subsets in some of the countries; and (2) identify the best field practices in road maintenance and operation on the basis of the same observations.
