The 4th International Conference on Driver Distraction and Inattention (DDI2015) hosted by ARRB will be taking place in Sydney on November 9 – 11, 2015, outside Europe for the first time. The major themes for the conference this year will include distraction and the automated vehicle, and the relationship between research findings yielded in experimental versus real world studies.
Following the request of an IRF members, we are currently looking for papers, research and documentation or even testimonials on how innovation in road construction can influence a project cost.
In the last years Netivei Israel has executed several tunnel construction projects. The costing method for the contractor takes into consideration the various characteristics and conditions of the rock that the constructor should pass (drill/bore) through.
We are interested in learning about the methods used by other road authorities and organizations which are implemented in DB and/or PPP projects and include the following:
- Costing method which takes the different characteristics of the rock into consideration and copes with the uncertainty of the state of the rock.
- Method for approving the payment to the contractor.
We would be grateful if you could distribute this request to the appropriate contact person(s) in your organization. We’d appreciate any information you can provide as soon as possible.
Please contact Ruth Lancet at firstname.lastname@example.org

Permanent Road Markings removal: Survey
Permanent road markings removal activities are carried out often during highway construction and maintenance operations. To avoid confusing or misguiding the motorist, removed markings should not be visible under any driving conditions. Also, pavement surface, as well as the environment, should suffer only minimum necessary damage caused by removal techniques.
