Above: Participants workshop ideas and solutions at our Strategic Maintenance Policy Workshop.
Making money work smarter was the theme of our Strategic Maintenance policy workshop, hosted by Advisian in Sydney last week.
This Journey Reliability Policy Chapter workshop proved to be an invaluable policy discussion on strategic road maintenance, with some fruitful ideas being drawn out from participants.
In particular, we looked closely at the attributes of an optimally operated network through the eyes of an asset owner. The discussion covered the outcomes asset owners sought so as to ensure their maintenance spending delivered the best return on investment.
The workshop also reviewed how road maintenance funding was allocated, and how the industry might better argue the case for increasing road maintenance funding.
