There are many divisions within a road administration organization (SRA, Norwegian Road Administration, municipalities, forest companies, etc.) that have a need for information on roads and their characteristics (road information). The information is needed to effectively plan and follow-up different processes, as well as in some cases, give information to the general public. In addition to their own roads, in certain situations it can be interesting to receive information about another organization's roads, to have a more complete picture of a road network system.
Within the road information area, Triona has extensive experience with everything from business process development, to system development for storing and maintaining road information and support systems for different business processes.

Storing and maintenance of road information
Triona has always had a central role in the development of the technical solution for the NVDB, both in Sweden and to a certain extent, in Norway. As a part of that role, Triona has also worked with the development of the road network model and participated in the development of the Swedish standard (SS637004). Triona has even worked extensively with data quality concerning the NVDB, both with regard to methods and the practical work needed to describe the quality of stored data.
Within this area, Triona has even participated in the new Traffic Measurement System (TMS) and the new Surfacing System (BellMan) at the SRA.
Support systems for different business processes
Triona has experience with development and maintenance of different road network related business systems.
A few examples are:
The Swedish Road Administraion and the Norwegian Road Administration use, for various processes, TNE to analyze and present road information from the NVDB. Additionally, the SRA uses TNE Selection to do searches and generate standardized lists and reports.
The SRA handles annually approximately 20,000 applications for exceptions for heavy, long and wide transportation. The DISA system uses NVDB information in TNE to calculate and describe an acceptable route.
The SRA had divided up the national road network into 150 different maintenance areas which purchase basic maintenance measures. With the help of STÅNGA, the road network with its accessibility and characteristics can be presented on maps and listed in reports however desired. It is even possible to make selections so that for example, all gravel roads smaller than 4.5 meters within a maintenance area can be shown separately. STÅNGA is used by the SRA during purchasing, and by the sub-contractors while performing maintenance.
