The Bangladeshi Roads and Highways Department, who construct and maintain 22,000-kilometres of the country’s road network, have seen roads deteriorate ahead of their time and maintenance costs increase, due to exceedingly heavy vehicles regularly using the network.
The Axle Load Control Stations Project aims to reduce road maintenance costs and prevent premature deterioration of the network by developing, calibrating, and validating a freight transport model to establish an effective load control mechanism.
Over the next 30 months, our specialist teams will review physical infrastructure facilities and develop specifications for all electromechanical equipment. We will also contribute to sustaining the axle load control system, once complete, by developing an appropriate knowledge, skills and institutional framework.
