Pavement Management systems have been designed to provide information on the functional and structural condition of roads so that road owners can offer a smooth and safe ride to road users at the lowest possible cost. They also provide reliable information to decision makers about the condition of the road network for maintenance and rehabilitation planning and funding. However, the problem with PMS systems has traditionally been that they have supported reactive maintenance whereby the road is repaired by mainly standard methods after a specified amount of visible damage has occurred on the pavement.
This on-line training course will focus on how to manage and implement Performance-based contracts to help road agencies meet their desired outcomes . Agencies that are seeking more effective mechanisms for privatizing maintenance programs will profit by sending key staff to learn from the experience of counterparts in the public and private sectors and from international financing institutions
In recent years, technological breakthroughs have combined to offer police forces more options to capture violations, and the use and impacts of these technologies need to be fully understood to ensure they achieve intended results.
IRF’s flagship event in Caribbean has become an essential gathering point for the region’s top transportation decision-makers and professionals, combining regional case studies and international insights.
Traffic simulation is the mathematical modelling of transportation systems (highways, arterial routes, roundabouts, grid systems, etc.) through the application of processes and specialized software to assist the design and management of transportation systems.
Road safety audit and inspections serve the common purpose of identifying risk factors related to road design or traffic control that may lead to crashes, or make crashes more severe. In many cases, they also assist network highway operators and city traffic departments in identifying engineering weaknesses and hazardous locations, even in the absence of robust traffic injury data.
This online course will provide a basic overview of public-private partnerships and project finance covering both academic theory as well as a technical review of some of the basic techniques used for the delivery and management of transportation infrastructure projects.
