The issues of transport infrastructure are linked to more than fifty-year tradition of research in the field of roads and airfields. Currently it is addressing the tasks focused on rationalization of the design, construction, maintenance and repairs of roads, railway structures and bridges. It also prepares background materials for the technical policy, diagnostics and evaluation of operational and technical conditions. It also addresses legislation, standardization of technical regulations in the field of transport infrastructure.
Laboratories are part of the Department of transport infrastructure and environment accredited to carry out set of tests for concrete and mortars in fresh and hardened state, geotechnical tests, soil and base layers of roads, and the measurement of selected variables, parameters roadways.
The research area is focused on addressing selected issues of transport infrastructure:
- management systems, technologies and diagnostics
- materials (mainly concrete and mortars))
