RATIONAL PAVEMENT MANAGEMENT OF CYCLE TRACKS: MANUAL FOR MANAGEMENT AND DESIGN

RATIONEEL BEHEER VAN FIETSPADEN: HANDLEIDING VOOR BEHEER EN ONTWERP

This report presents the results of the "Cycle track pavement management" working group, which was supervised by the Netherlands Centre for Research and Contract Standardization in Civil and Traffic Engineering (CROW). The tasks of the working group were: (a) to review the existing Dutch preliminary standards for cycle track pavement management; and (b) to investigate the applicability of the existing Dutch Pavement Management System (PMS) to cycle tracks and, related to this, the development of simple measurement techniques. Based upon this research the quality standards for a number of damage patterns were raised. Both the planning and the determination of the type of maintenance measures can be done through tables based upon warning and intervention threshold levels. In these distinction is made between asphalt, concrete, and block pavements. Comfort index measurements prove to offer a good representation of the user's judgement of pavement quality. Finally a decision tree is put up for choosing the optimum pavement construction type depending on long-term management costs and qualitative considerations. This publication replaces the 1986 "Maintenance of cycle tracks" Communication of the Dutch Study Centre for Road Construction (SCW) and the Dutch Study Centre for Traffic Engineering (SVT) (see IRRD 803188).
