Explanation:
"Vehicle Operating Cost Data: from existing data, supplemented where necessary by limited surveys, prepare tables showing:
(a) vehicle operating costs by vehicle type (private car, small truck, large truck, microbus, bus motorcycle); either by variation in speed (if possible) e.g., 0 km/h (idling), to 10 km/h, 20 km/h, 40 km/h, 60 km/h, 80 km/h, or by benchmark speed of say 40 km/h; and by road condition (if possible ***roughness factor cms/km***)."
