Interrelationship between geometrical road design and maintenance was analysed.
While, the geometrical road design is igno red in almost all the models despite the fact that geometrical road design, such as road alignment and road restrain systems, affects the costs during the road life cycle (Freer-Hewish 1990).
Experience from the Nordic countries and other European countries indicate that the influence of geometrical road design on road maintenance has been ignored in most of the PPP projects carried out up to now (Karim 2008).
The above presented studies of performances-based contracts show that the interrelationship between geometrical road design and future maintenance measures has been considered in a very limited extent.
All maintenance efficiency efforts evaluated in this study have one thing in common - namely ignorance of the interrelationship between geometrical road design and maintenance as an efficient tool to increase maintenance efficiency.
