3.2 Winter Service

Technical Committee 3.2 "Winter Service" focuses on road networks particularly vulnerable to the winter weather. Maintaining acceptable levels of winter service remains a challenging issue amid the struggle with snow and ice on roads. In-depth research on extensive use of new technologies provides a practical approach and application to winter service. Case studies and the major findings of winter maintenance from various countries are expected to form the basis of updating "Snow and Ice Data Book," and winter service in urban areas and the implication of connected and automated vehicles on winter service are investigated as well. It should be noted that Technical Committee is actively engaged in preparing the technical program for the 2022 "World Winter Service and Road Resilience Congress" in Calgary, Canada. (extract from the Strategic Plan)
