WP3 – Maintenance (BASt)

The overall objective of WP3 ‘Maintenance’ is to find new technologies and modular precast components with the required in-use properties in a cost-effective way and to optimise the methods for maintenance. The aim is to achieve a flexible, durable and green infrastructure, to reduce traffic obstructions and to decrease the use of energy and increase the safety of the transport across the different transport modes. This is achieved through:

  • Exploring the state-of-art in maintenance activities across the transport modes;
  • Identifying promising opportunities, knowledge and practices of infrastructure maintenance from different transport modes;
  • Developing roadmaps and basic concepts for future initiatives on cross-modal maintenance research
  • Engaging with stakeholders to advise on the establishment on an “Intermodal maintenance Working Group”

As most improvements involve maintenance technologies, WP3 will act in close cooperation with WP2 “Construction”, WP4 “Inspection” and WP5 “Recycling & Reuse”.
