2003 NATIONAL ROAD MAINTENANCE CONDITION SURVEY (29-04-2004)
The report of the 2003 National Road Maintenance Condition Survey (NRMCS) on the condition of roads and footways in England and Wales is published today [29th April 2004].
This report presents information on both the surface condition and structural condition of roads. Surface condition is measured using a visual survey of defects and machine based surveys of wet road skidding resistance and the English trunk road network. The structural survey uses a machine to measure the deflection of a road under a standard load.
Key results are attached.
