Guidelines for Planning, Construction and Maintenance of Roads (RVS)
Each RVS (the code is covering the planning, construction and maintenance of roads) includes the state of the art and is to be used by all persons involved in planning and construction (planners, engineers, contractors, administrations). The use of these “rules of the game” on one side guarantees a uniform quality level in terms of the planning, construction and operation of transportation and traffic infrastructure, and on the other side it provides a high level of safety and quality for the users of the infrastructure while at the same time generating national economic benefit. More than 300 RVS are prepared and administered by expert committees. The members of these committees are working in the fields of construction, administration, planning, science, construction industry and infrastructure operation and work in an honorary capacity. The committees are deciding which of these original German RVS are translated into English.
The current translated guidelines can be ordered single or in a RVS-Subscription with regular updates. The FSV is still working in translating guidelines from German into English.
