Hang, Wen, He, Jie, Ju, Peng, & Li, Xuhong (2005) Site survey and analysis of highway trucks overloading status quo in Anhui. In Proceedings of : Gearing Up for Sustainable Transport in Eastern Asia : ISC, EASTS - BANGKOK '05, 21-24 September, 2005, Bangkok, Thailand.
In 2004, with the increasing overloading restriction requirements of society in Anhui, a provincial comprehensive overloading transportation survey has been developed to take evaluations on overloading actuality and enforcement efficiency with the support of the World Bank. A total of six site surveys were conducted at Hefei, Fuyang, Luan, Wuhu, Huainan and Huangshan Areas with four main contents respectively: traffic volume, axle load, freight information and registration information. Via statistical analysis on the survey data, conclusions were gained that: vehicle overloading are very universal and serious problems at arterial highways in Anhui now. The traffic loads have far exceeded the designed endure capacity of highways and have caused prevalent premature pavement damage, especially for rigid pavement. The overloading trucks are unimpeded engaged in highway freight transportation actually due to the disordered overloading enforcement strategies and the deficient inspecting technologies.
