Performance Indicators for Describing the Road Infrastructure Asset at Network Level. Results of the Pilot Project for Bavaria

Extension, sustainable rehabilitation and maintenance of road infrastructure in highly developed economies represent a complex and multifaceted planning system, which requires performance indicators for strategic planning at various levels of management and controlling. When determining appropriate indicators, the following envisaged outcomes are in the foreground: 1) Ensuring of appropriate accessibility and mobility; 2) Safety of road users and road environment; 3) Sustainability and environmental protection, as well as; 4) Ensuring of the expected state of preservation (substance). The indicators refer to the description of the snapshot (status-quo-indicators) as well as to spatial differences (disparity indicators) and development over time (dynamics indicators). In this context, particular importance is attached to the disparity indicators. In 2014 the Bavarian Land Parliament has appointed an Enquete Commission to realize the state objective of “Promoting and ensuring equivalent conditions of living and working throughout Bavaria”. On behalf of the Supreme Building Authority of the Bavarian Ministry of the Interior, for Building and Transport, a approach has been established to identify and document relevant performance indicators for the description and evaluation of regional disparity in Bavaria in relation to road infrastructures. The present contribution contains a selection of the results of this project. The focus of the analysis was set on the preservation of roads.
