    During the implementation of asset management strategies, maintenance actions are required in order to keep assets at a desired performance level. It is verified that there is a large disparity in Europe regarding the way performance indicators are quantified and how performance goals are specified. Therefore, COST TU 1406 Action aims to bring together, for the first time, both research and practicing community in order to accelerate the establishment of a European guideline in this subject. In case of roadway bridges, specific performance indicators are established for their components. Obtained indicators are then compared with performance goals, in order to evaluate if the quality control plan is accomplished. These goals will vary according to technical, environmental, economic and social factors. In Working Group 2 within COST TU 1406 Action existing performance goals related to the roadway bridges are analyzed. This paper presents an overview of some of the existing performance goals and indicators in Europe.
