Road Research Programme



Road Research Programme
Útügyi Kutatási Program

Background & policy context: 

Because public roads are fixed, have a long lifetime and are expensive, the development, maintenance, operation and reconstruction must be prepared with detailed research work. The development, operation and maintenance of public roads will be a national and communal duty also in the future, as will be the financing of road research.

The Technical and Information Services on National Roads (ÁKMI Kht.) after its formation in 1996, in 1997 worked out and has been operating the research and development competition system for six years.

The prototypes of the system were the EU's R&D programmes, with some revisions and simplification because of the smaller Hungarian scale.
