Abstract

So far, life cycle studies have been merely an interesting research subject, until VTT and Finnra (Finnish Road Administration) became inspired to implement them for first time in the actual procurement of road maintenance. Two pilot projects proved that life cycle studies - even though limited - could be applied to day. However, more research is needed to create new design tools for life cycle performance.
