Road marking and road stud products: Stakeholder survey



The procedure set out in the Manual of Contract Documents for Highways Works (MCHW) for the approval of road marking and road stud products for use on the trunk road network in the UK require testing to be carried out by on-road trials. In these trials products are assessed on a road test site for a pre-determined amount of trafficking, typically 1 million wheel-overs.

Purpose of research

In order to allow more complete understanding of the methods available for the assessment of road marking and road stud products, Highways England, Safety Engineering and Standards, Safer Roads Design team has commissioned TRL to undertake a study into the comparative benefits of methods for approving road marking and road stud products. The results of this study will allow informed decisions regarding the ongoing approval of road marking and road stud products for use on the trunk road network in the UK.
