Will making sound road asset management decisions lead to improvement in efficiency, effectiveness and whole of life value for money in the delivery of road maintenance operations and renewals?
This is the challenge that the Road Maintenance Task Force considered in the research report, “NZTA Road Maintenance Task Force – Better Asset Management Planning and Delivery Report March 2012.”
The research problem assumed that an asset management capacity and capability gap exists in the sector causing sub-optimal delivery of programmes.
This report presents the research results of the Technical Working Group evaluation of the Road Maintenance: Better Asset Management, Planning and Delivery.
The key findings of the research would be of interest to infrastructure asset management practitioners, taking learning points on:
- Current Practice
- Target Practice
- Performance Management
- Policy Implications
- Gains and Benefits
- Asset Management Skills
The recommendations are transferrable concepts and learning that could be applied to similar infrastructure asset management situations.
