This paper reports on an assignment commissioned by the Swedish Transport Administration (TRV). The assignment was to map how other national road authorities in Europe use – describe, implement and follow up – on the term and concept of a road service.
After a literature study, eight European countries (Cyprus, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Luxemburg, Croatia, the Netherlands and Germany) were contacted. The results suggest that in Europe, just like in Sweden, the road authorities develop direct, indirect and other functions needed but the concept of road service is not used.
