Road network pavement performance indicators: management of long term performance contracts

The Mornington Peninsula Shire in Victoria has amalgamated routine road maintenance activities and traditional annual reseal/rehabilitation capital works activities into the one long-term integrated road network management contract. The Safer Local Roads (SLR) contract term is 15 years incorporating annual performance reviews. This is an approach not previously undertaken at this scale at the local government level in Australia. The activities are being provided as part of a quality relationship (partnership) between the Shire and a private sector service provider Works Infrastructure, with a smooth monthly service charge. The aim of the contract is to fully integrate all road network management services into one service provision to obtain greater value for money, improve services, obtain a greater certainty in service delivery, and implement a sustainable accelerated program of capital works deliveries. Various specific performance measures exist to enable contract performance to be assessed, and this paper details the development of methodologies and processes and calculations for measurement of one of the key indicators, being road pavement performance for sealed roads.
