  • OECD/ITF JTRC - Heavy Vehicles: Regulatory, Operational and Productivity Improvements
    major part of this demand Outline The study examined the safety environmental and productivity impacts of current and future heavy vehicle operations and make an inventory of regulatory measures and enforcement practices The effects of changes in heavy vehicle weight and dimensions operational policy and technology on their compatibility with the road infrastructure and other road users were assessed Based on these insights the project concluded by evaluating how the needs of society and industry for increased road transport productivity can be achieved under conditions that will provide for significantly better safety and meet target reductions of emissions and noise and have manageable impacts and demands on the relevant road networks Participating Countries The following 20 countries participated in the study Australia Belgium Canada Czech Republic Denmark France Germany Hungary Latvia Mexico Netherlands Norway Poland Russia South Africa Sweden Switzerland Ukraine United Kingdom and the United States The European Commission was also member of the working group Output Summary Document Assessment of the International Truck Fleet A Comparative Analysis Full report Moving Freight with Better Trucks For more information please contact Véronique FEYPELL Related events Workshop on Truck Transport Safety Productivity and Sustainability Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting Washington D

  • OECD/ITF JTRC - Long Life Pavement Surfacing
    such wearing courses would be economically viable for roads with a AADT of 80 000 vehicles or more providing their construction costs were less than 3 times those of traditional wearing courses Phase II of the project coordinated testing by national testing laboratories to assess the durability of the wearing courses This involved small scale testing laboratory testing and accelerated load testing of the most promising pavement materials epoxy asphalt and high performance cementitious materials Epoxy Asphalt has already demonstrated its ability to deliver a 40 year service life as a road surfacing on steel bridge decks Testing undertaken in Phase 2 confirmed its potential for long service life on underlying road pavements which are more flexible than stiff bridge decking HPCM is a new material that was developed under Phase 2 of the project It consists of a layer of ultra high performance steel fibre reinforced fine mortar in which hard polish resistant aggregate particles are embedded forming a 10 mm composite layer The strength of this material was demonstrated during Phase 2 This Phase 3 study consists of full scale field trials of epoxy asphalt and high cementitious materials Objective of the Phase 3 Project Phase 2 recommended to undertake field trials for both materials to confirm the performance demonstrated in laboratory testings The goals of the trials are to Confirm the performance of the two materials under real traffic conditions Develop construction methods Improve cost estimates Optimise material mixes Gain experience contractors experience Participants The project is chaired by François de Larrard LCPC France The following countries participate in the study Belgium Denmark France Germany Israel Hungary New Zealand Norway South Africa United Kingdom United States Calendar The project was launched in 2009 Field tests started in 2009 New Zealand and 2010 France Further sites are planned

    inhabitants to congregate in large urban areas also lead to sometimes intolerable levels of traffic congestion on urban streets and thoroughfares posing a formidable challenge for all large and growing urban areas Effective urban governance requires a careful balancing between the benefits of agglomeration and the dis benefits of excessive congestion The Working Group on Tacking Congestion in Large Urban Areas 2004 2006 in its report Managing Urban Traffic Congestion put forth a set of policy oriented research based recommendations for effectively managing traffic congestion and eliminating excessive congestion in large urban areas The report seeks to answer key questions related to the management of urban traffic congestion What exactly is congestion What does it prevent us from accomplishing What is excessive congestion What are the costs and other impacts of congestion What strategic vision should guide congestion management policies What technology and operational options are available What should a reasonable and effective congestion management strategy look like The report aims to provide policymakers and technical staff with the strategic vision conceptual frameworks and guidance on some of the practical tools necessary to manage congestion in such a way as to reduce its overall impact on individuals families communities and

    transport development involving all transport modes including appropriate levels of public transport are fundamentally important to the high quality access needed in large urban areas Road users want reliable door to door trips that are free of stress Road users generally accept a degree of road congestion but attach a high value to the reliability and predictability of road travel conditions Reliability needs to be given greater weight in assessing options and prioritising congestion mitigation measures Targeting travel time variability and the most extreme congestion incidents can deliver rapid tangible and cost effective improvements Unreliable and extremely variable travel times impose the greatest misery on road users An increase in the reliability and predictability of travel times can rapidly reduce the cost associated with excessive congestion levels The age of unmanaged access to highly trafficked urban roads is coming to an end Most traditional congestion relief measures either free up existing capacity or deliver new road capacity which is likely to be rapidly swamped with previously suppressed and new demand at least in economically dynamic cities In future demand for use of highly trafficked roads will need to be managed Demand management strategies should take full account of how residents
