In 2017, Anas International Enterprise carried out the surveying of the paving of the Egnatia motorway, in Greece, on behalf of Hellenic Asset Development Fund. The analyses were carried out on a road stretch of about 1,900 km, using TSD (Traffic Speed Deflectometer), a system that monitors the quality of the road.
The Egnatia highway is an infrastructure connecting the Adriatic port of Igoumenitsa with Turkey and crosses the Hellenic peninsula from west to east. In addition to the Egnatia, three vertical axes of connection with neighbouring Balkan countries were also analysed (Albania, Macedonia, and Bulgaria).
The results of the analyses carried out will contribute to the raising of quality standards of the paving, with consequent environmental protection, increased levels of safety, and road network viability.
The work was carried out with TSD (Traffic Speed Deflectometer), a means for monitoring the quality of road superstructures. TSD measures the lift and longitudinal regularity of the continuous paving and the average traffic speed (80 km / h), thus avoiding the hindrance of normal traffic flow on the artery.
How TSD works:
The technologies and methodologies of Anas in the management and maintenance of the road network allow it to effectively analyse the materials used and the state of the road. Synergies are also possible with the presence of FS in Greece, following the acquisition of the train operator TrainOse.
