1999 - Deterioration of Unpaved Roads Software

The World Bank's Deterioration of Unpaved Roads Model (DETOUR) implements in MS-Excel the road deterioration relationships for unpaved roads of the Highway Design and Maintenance Standards Model (HDM-III), which are the same as the forthcoming Highway Development and Management Model (HDM-4). DETOUR was developed for the World Bank Rural Transport Thematic Group and is designed primarily for engineered unpaved roads, of either gravel or earth surfacing, because the empirical models are based on a variety of such roads. When necessary it is possible to use the relationships also for tracks as a first estimate, but the user needs to be aware that the environmental effects of drainage and rainfall may be poorly represented. For more information regarding roughness and the economic aspects of low volume roads, visit the Design & Appraisal of Rural Transport Infrastructure Web page maintained by the World Bank Rural Transport Thematic Group.

Chris and Lis

We are Lis Pedersen and Chris Bennett. We’ve been married over 30 years and each found our way to New Zealand in the early 1980s from Denmark and Canada respectively. Golden Bay has been our happy place for almost 20 years and we are now based in Pohara just above the beach, with our two cats Coco and Max.
