II.1.4)Short description:

CEDR’s Performance Working Group deals with various topics including benchmarking, common KPIs and definition of measures. The group produced the 2017 TEN-T (Roads) performance report which was the fifth biennial report that CEDR has published on the performance of the main road network within CEDR member countries. The first performance report was published in 2009 and since then, despite being voluntary, 24 of CEDR’s member countries have chosen to participate in at least one of the 4 reports. CEDR's intention in producing these reports is to establish a stable set of data with which to monitor trends and identify changes in the performance of the TEN-T (Roads) network. As such, the report is a particularly useful source of information for individual NRAs, regulatory bodies and others for benchmarking purposes and for setting national performance targets.

The object of this contract is to collate and assemble the CEDR Performance Report 2019.
