The Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket) annually monitors the condition of the national road network with survey vehicles. This is an operation that is, in principle, still carried out using the same technical basis as in 1986. During this time, however, measurement quantities have increased, measurement quality has improved, and measurement methods have been refined. In addition to monitoring the road network condition, the purpose of measurement surveys is to provide an information base that can be used to support investment decisions and maintenance planning. Condition measurement data can be used at an initial stage to identify potential maintenance candidates. Further investigations, carried out by project leaders, can then be used to determine which of the candidates are selected for maintenance action. The Swedish Transport Administration would ultimately like to be able to describe road conditions derived from surface measurement surveys even more accurately. This would allow project leaders to make more objective maintenance action decisions.

With technical support from the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI), the Swedish Road Administration carries out the procurement of road surface measurement survey services. Road surface measurement services, for the period 2015 to 2018 (plus option year 2019), were obtained through a selective procurement process. Out of six suppliers who were invited to participate, three accepted the invitation to take part in the technical tests. The purpose of the tests is to examine the supplier’s ability to perform during simulated production conditions and be able to carry out the measurement surveys in accordance with pre-described conditions and specified limits. This report summarizes the results of the technical tests.
