APPLICATION OF KNOWLEDGE OF PAVEMENT SURFACE PROPERTIES IN THE NETHERLANDS

Criteria for skid resistance values in use for maintenance of roads are based on accident analyses. Such criteria also exist for rut depths. Routine investigations of rut depths by means of continuous measurement at traveling speed (50 km/h) are made possible by means of the Dutch rut meter. For contract work a minimum value of the skid resistance of new roads has to be met by the contractor. If these requirements are not met, a penalty or, if skid values are very low, restoration of the road surface at the cost of the contractor will be demanded. /Author/
