Applus+ provides road asset management services, including road-auscultation, asset- and inventory data collection, with highly specialized personnel in road infrastructure management and inspection technology.
The cost of corrective road maintenance is 3 to 5 times greater than the cost of the appropriate preventive maintenance. In the absence of preventive maintenance, and at a critical point in the life of an asset, the asset will require re-building. The wide range of road asset management services and technology developed by Applus+ help road owners and operators manage their road assets more effectively through timely maintenance intervention.
As well as assessing road function and structure with our advanced auscultation systems, we can provide highway management solutions for effective road maintenance and quality control in road construction. Applus+ can measure:
• Road uniformity
• Surface distress
• Skid resistance
• Deflection/structural capacity
Our highway asset management services deploy the latest ground-penetrating radar (GPR) and provide 3D road models made up of LIDAR point clouds.
