Improving decision making and works program development with continuous network strength and condition data

MRWA has embraced and led the development and application of sound asset management processes over many years. With the introduction of new data collection technology and with MRWA having initiated a review of current MRWA systems and processes in the complementary WARRIP project ‘Towards Best Practice in Management of Road Pavement Assets Stage 1’ (herein referred to as the Towards Best Practice project), it is an opportune time to explore further improvement of processes and decision making related to road network investment. By undertaking this project, (herein referred to as the Improved Decision-Making project), in parallel with the Towards Best Practice project and outlining recommendations for improvements, MRWA will be best placed to take advantage of the investment it is making in the acquisition of continuous network strength and condition data provided by the ARRB Traffic Speed Deflectometer (TSD). Given the complementary nature of these two projects, it is intended that both projects be undertaken in two stages, with the second stage of each project being more fully scoped after considering the outcomes of stage one of the sister project. In this regard, MRWA will have an opportunity to ensure that the focal point of this project, to be ready for the delivery of the soon to be acquired high speed deflection and surface condition data, will be well considered with detailed knowledge and mapping of what it is currently doing in pavement asset management more broadly.
