Ramboll’s special RST technology is used worldwide to measure the condition of roads and road markings.
In Hungary we have kept track of the road network condition for more than ten years. Annually, the condition of more than 10,000 kilometres of the state road network is being measured using the Laser RST technology. The main outputs from road measurements are parameters such as surface texture, cross fall, rut depth and user comfort (expressed in terms of IRI, International Roughness Index).
The data is imported straight into the Hungarian Road Database and is used for asset management, budgeting and maintenance planning. Ramboll cooperates with a local Hungarian company on data formatting and delivery. Measurements are performed with 50% local staff.
