NAASRA STUDY OF ROAD MAINTENANCE STANDARDS, COSTING AND MANAGEMENT - SOME SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENTS

This paper was presented at session 8 - NAASRA maintenance. Road maintenance systems of varying degrees of formality are operating throughout Australia at present. The systems operated by each state road authority have developed according to the needs related to locality, climatic conditions, population, traffic factors and the organisational tradition of the authority. Further refinement to these systems is now being sought to more closely determine funding and resource needs to ensure economy of operation and to control expenditure. The NAASRA study of road maintenance standards, costing and management was designed to provide full SRA participation in all phases of the study. This paper reflects the study's present thinking on standards, costing and management of road maintenance, identifies some of the techniques being considered in detail and indicates the probable benefits to road authorities arising from the study.
