NHAI DECIDES TO DEPLOY NSV TO ENHANCE QUALITY OF NATIONAL HIGHWAYS

Context

National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has decided to deploy Network Survey Vehicle.

Details

  • It will be deployed to enhance the quality of the National Highways in the country. Carrying out a road condition survey using NSV on the National Highways has been made mandatory at the time of certifying completion of the project and every six months thereafter.
  • The provision has also been included as a part of the standard bidding document of consultancy services.
  • The deployment will help in enhancing the overall quality of the highways as NSV uses the latest survey techniques including a high-resolution digital camera and  Laser Road Profilometer for measurement of distresses in the road surface.
  • NSV will also help collate data to analyse the road condition including measurement of the road surface, surface cracking, potholes and patches.
  • It will also provide data insights relating to side drains and road furniture etc.
  • The data collected through the NSV survey will be uploaded on NHAI’s based portal Data Lake, where it will be analysed by Road Asset Management Cell to assess the condition and roughness of the road to prioritise for the maintenance.
