The colloquium “Straßenbetrieb 2013” (Road Operation 2013) on September 17 and 18 at KIT will focus on the minimization of obstruction of traffic, increasing the safety of work on roads with a high traffic load, correct assessment of salt stocks for winter services, and effective deicing in winter. The Institute of Highway and Railroad Engineering (ISE) of KIT will organize the colloquium and the accompanying exhibition together with the Forschungsgesellschaft für Straßen- und Verkehrswesen (FGSV, Research Association for the Road and Transport Sector). One of the KIT research activities presented deals with the dwell time of deicing salt on country roads.
