Delivery of highway maintenance

Our Asset Management Policy and Strategy provide the basis for an integrated framework for the delivery of highway maintenance services across the city's road network and optimise resources for the management of the highway infrastructure.

The purpose of asset management planning is to change how we deliver highway services in a way that makes the process more intelligence led and customer responsive. An intelligence led approach will bring greater value for money and help achieve our key goals.

The principles of asset management are based around reliable knowledge of the asset. It involves having

  • a comprehensive asset inventory
  • knowledge of the condition of the asset
  • its lifecycle
  • how long it will last

Equipped with reliable data, we're able to target investment at the areas of greatest need, ensuring that we maximise the return on our investment.

The main benefit of adopting an asset management approach is that it provides officers and politicians with informed levels of decision making.
