Maintaining the conditions for optimum exploitation of road networks is one of the primary activities of their administrators.
The basic elements for establishing the decision-making act, are obtained by the correct evaluation, from the technical and financial point of view, of what is necessary for the normal unfolding, without interruptions, and in complete safety, of the car traffic.
In the evaluation process, the managers must have at their disposal sufficient information, regarding the technical status of the road network from the administration, when and where it is appropriate to intervene and what maintenance and repairs operations should be performed.
Only in this way, road managers will be able to adopt the appropriate strategy so that the investment reaches the highest rate of return and of course falls within the limits of the allocated funds.
This paper presents A.D.T.S. (Automatic Determination of the Technical Status) application, designed using the Microsoft Access program. The application allows the determination of the technical status of the roads, storage, retrieval, updating and verification of information regarding the technical status of the roads. The information is kept in a road reference table, as a storage model in data banks, which can be used by public road administrators in their work, regarding the scheduling of works and justifying the need to finance road intervention works.
