This report is the result of a survey conducted within task group S6 (TG S6) into perceived common procurement issues and the solutions applied in participating countries. Eight survey
topics were selected on the basis of:
- urgency and difficulty (qualification and selection of bidders, the most economically advantageous tender, abnormally low tenders, dispute resolution);
- political urgency (the role of small and medium-sized enterprises, social return);
- additions to the new Procurement Directive (innovation, past performance).
Standardisation and simplification of the working processes of your NRA and improved validation of your data and improved infrastructure at lower costs is the expected result of using BIM.

CEDR task group N3 (Winter maintenance standards) was tasked with providing CEDR with information about winter maintenance standards, procedures and operational methods and challenges as well as a list of possible research topics from the field of winter service that could be used in CEDR research calls.
This is the third biennial report produced by CEDR on the performance of the trans-European road network, TEN-T (Roads). It builds on previous reports to show that it is possible to produce comparable information on the performance of the TEN-T (Roads) network within the majority of CEDR member countries

The national road authorities (NRAs) of 13 European countries launched the BEXPRAC survey (Benchmarking of expenditures and practices of maintenance and operation) in an effort to benchmark the performance of their maintenance and operation (M&O) policies.
Les autorités routières nationales (ARN) de 13 pays européens ont lancé l’étude intitulée BEXPRAC (Benchmarking of expenditures and practices of maintenance and operation), à savoir l’évaluation comparative des dépenses et des pratiques d’entretien et d’exploitation, visant à évaluer la performance de leurs politiques en matière d’entretien et d’exploitation (E&E).
A review of the rules and practices concerning the safe distance between two vehicles on roads
was performed in 2007 and 2008 by members of CEDR’s TG Road Safety.
Member countries were asked to answer the following questions:
- Is there a regulation that governs the safe distance between vehicles in your country?
- If so, what are the rules (e.g. leave at least 2 seconds following distance to the vehicle in
- Have you experienced any problems enforcing these rules?
A review of experience of rumble strips was performed in 2007 by the members of CEDR’s TG Road Safety.
This paper sums up the answers received from CEDR’s member states. It focuses on longitudinal shoulder or median rumble strips only; it does not deal with the transversal rumble strips put on the pavement to get drivers to reduce their speed or as a warning, e.g. on big slopes or before a junction.
Latvian version of Future European Road Network
At the start of the CEDR RN2 work programme, it was identified that the noise mapping and action planning requirements of the EU Environmental Noise Directive (END) would form a significant component of the group's activities. Five subgroups were established to review and monitor activities associated with END noise mapping, END action planning, value for money in road traffic noise abatement, the EU noise calculation model (CNOSSOS-EU), and road noise research needs.
