The RVS (the code covering the planning, construction and maintenance of roads) include the engineering state of the art and can be used by all persons involved in planning and construction (planners, engineers, contractors, administrations). The use of these “rules of the game” on the one hand guarantees a uniform quality level in terms of the planning, construction and operation of transportation infrastructure and, on the other hand, it provides a high level of both safety and quality for the user of the infrastructure while at the same time generating national economic benefit. The more than 300 RVS are prepared and administered by expert committees. The members of these committees come from the fields of construction administration, planning, science, construction industry and infrastructure operators; they work in an honorary capacity.
