Maintaining the state road network: follow-on audit

In 2009 the Auditor General tabled a report titled Maintaining the State Road Network. The audit examined whether Main Roads Western Australia’s (Main Roads) management of road maintenance had been efficient and effective. The report concluded that the condition of the network had deteriorated since Main Roads contracted out its maintenance function, with the average age of the road increasing and inadequate levels of planned maintenance. It also found that better information was needed to inform Main Roads’ decisions about where, when and what type of maintenance was needed to ensure cost effectiveness and reduce the significant backlog of overdue maintenance. This follow-on audit provides an assessment of whether the condition of the state road network has improved and whether reasonable steps have been taken to address the problems identified in the first report. It also includes an assessment of whether Main Roads has addressed the 10 recommendations of the 2009 report.
