A capital stitch in time saves nine [road asset management]

There is a need to protect a nation's investment in arguably its largest single asset, the road network. The paper states that to achieve this it is necessary to have an holistic approach to asset management linking the necessary economic perceptions, required for the strategic planning of the network as a whole, with the very real engineering based tactical, or project, level planning for individual sections of the road network. It suggests a practical template to permit this approach to work, with examples taken from implementations in a variety of countries. The importance of having appropriate standards, and how they may be determined, implemented and achieved, not least by fixing realistic budgets in a logical manner, is stressed as is the use of internal and external audit processes to ensure any such system continues to be fit for purpose.
