Abstract

Reliable data and sound analysis are necessary to manage a road network in a costeffective manner. Nowadays, adequate systems and equipment are available for gathering data and analysis. Grounded on sound analysis, properly financed roadimprovement plans can be estimated. It is possible to outline different improvement scenarios on the basis of given priorities, say reduction of mortal accidents, and financial constraints. The process should blend the managerial and technical perspectives, as is shown with an empirical illustration from the road network of the Madrid region in Spain.
