The HeRoad project has investigated the road asset management situation and what practises exist to collect performance measurements in Europe. This has been done in a view from the operational level using a holistic perspective, in the sense that multiple assets and the cross relation between those are included. HeRoad’s approach by addressing the need for condition performance measurements can be justified with some words from (AASHTO, 2011); “What´s measured gets done; if you do not measure results, you cannot tell success from failure.” This implies that the view of investigation has been from the operational level more than from the strategic level (bottom–up).
