Pavement Marking Retroreflectivity Surveys for Government Road Agencies

reduce survey costs and increase safety for survey operators and road users

Our detailed technical knowledge and experience helps surveyors and road authorities make roads safer and reduces costs.

Using our detailed technical knowledge and experience to help surveyors and road authorities to make roads safer and reduce maintenance costs. Our advice is highly valuable in ensuring the most efficient means of capturing road asset data to pinpoint and plan road maintenance. In addition, we have a strong track record in collaborating with road agencies globally on Research & Development projects to improve the assessment and quality of road pavement markings and assets.

Road Marking Asset Condition Surveys

While road safety has always been the priority for maintaining effective maintenance of road pavement markings, the introduction of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) has really increased the focus on the quality of road markings. These valuable vehicle safety systems can only be effective where the quality and night visibility (retroreflectivity) and day visibility (contrast ratio) on road pavement markings is sufficient for the ADAS machine vision technology to identify the traffic lanes and their pavement markings.

With our advanced knowledge of road pavement markings, gained from developing technology to assess these road assets, we can provide valuable support to DOTs, Road Agencies & Maintenance Authorities worldwide.

  • We assist road agencies develop annual performance retroreflectivity surveys of pavement markings and to maximize the survey results with the outputs to efficiently maintain road pavement markings safely & efficiently and build maintenance schedules to maximize budgets & give value to the taxpayer.
  • We can help model the cost benefits of road pavement marking condition surveys in planning maintenance routines. Our team can assist in planning survey routes for maximum road pavement data collection in the most cost-efficient routing using the technology available.
  • We can also provide valuable support in customizing reporting software to analyze the road pavement survey data in outputs to prioritize road pavement marking maintenance programs and get the most out of maintenance budgets.
  • Types of Road Pavement Asset Surveys
    • Long Line Markings – edge, lane & median lines
    • Bridges – lane lines that cross the main line
    • Gores – marking hatching between on/off ramps
    • Ramps – markings on/off ramps for each junction along the road
    • Turning Lanes – each turning lane along the length of the road center
    • Lane Markings – directional arrows, road numbers & symbols, crosswalks & critical warning markings.
    • RPMs Markers – the absence or presence of RPMs with video

Efficient, safe & easy

Up to 50% reduction in survey operator and fuel costs compared to side mounted retroreflectometers.

Road Pavement Asset Assessment – Research and Development

At Reflective Measurement Systems Ltd we participate in research and development of road infrastructure assets, applying artificial intelligence, machine vision, lighting & optics combined with electronics to solve complex pavement asset assessment problems.

We openly collaborate internationally with relevant infrastructure stakeholders in the industry and universities to identify key problems. Working with our research partners, we coordinate our collective resources to develop innovative technical solutions to improve road pavement safety and increase the efficiency of road pavement maintenance and pavement network surveys.

Our Customer's feedback

“Transport Infrastructure Ireland were very happy with the survey”

“Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) were very happy with the survey results and impressed with the RetroTek-OnLineView software software with interactive data base and video analysis. The timescale was tight (12 weeks) and delivery was enabled by the efficiency of the RetroTek-M system.”

Mr. Conor Fitzgerald, Senior Network Operations, Transport Infrastructure Ireland

“..impressed with the RL accuracy of the RetroTek..”

“We were very satisfied with the survey results and impressed with the RL accuracy of the RetroTek-M and the ability to detect the reflective pavement markings (RPMs)/road studs to within 3% accuracy over 1km.

This information was very helpful in assisting our maintenance department to prioritise maintenance of road markings and reflective pavement markings (RPMs) / road studs where most needed and plan future maintenance schedules.

The contract was delivered on time due to the efficiency of the RetroTek-M system to simultaneously measure the performance of multiple road assets in one pass.”

Andrew Elliot, Network Manager, M50 Concessions Ltd.

“ERA was very happy with the survey results and impressed with the RetroTek QuickView Pro Cloud software”

“ERA was very happy with the survey results and impressed with the RetroTek QuickView Pro Cloud software with interactive data base, mapping and video analysis. It gives good overview of results and opportunity very easy to plan further road marking replacement plans.

The timescale was tight and due to weather conditions, it was very hard to keep in timescale. But despite that the delivery was enabled by the efficiency of the contractor ERC Consulting Ltd and RetroTek-M system.”

Mr. Janno Sammul, Development Manager, Traffic Management Department, Estonian Road Administration (ERA)
