Extend the availability and lifetime of infrastructure
Highways and roads are significant investments in vital state, city and municipal infrastructure. Detailed planning and multidisciplinary technical knowledge are essential to ensure compliance with various technical standards and regulations. Government and transport authorities, developers and operators need to be aware of the regulated aspects including survey, investigation, designing, construction, environment, maintenance and safety. Structural damage that goes unnoticed can lead to safety risks and is costly to repair at a later stage.
TÜV SÜD’s road and highway services include third-party road testing and inspection to ensure road works structures are safe, stable, reliable and compliant with regulations. Our quality assurance services optimise the performance of road structures while our cost-effective refurbishment strategies extend the lifetime of road infrastructure. In addition, we provide planning and ensure legal certainty.
