Extending the life and performance of road infrastructure
The Assets Program’s objective is to provide the road services the community needs at the least long-term cost.
Each year more than $18 billion is spent on roads across Australia and New Zealand; a significant investment by all levels of government.
Roads exist as part of an integrated land transport system and as a service delivery arrangement.
The Assets Program provides strategic information to road system managers that helps them to manage and match demand with supply, provide new and upgraded links, and maintain existing infrastructure.
The work of the Assets Program is informed by five task forces:
- Assets Task Force | which also oversees the Road Authority Pavement Marking and Telecommunications in Road Reserves working groups.
- Bridge Task Force
- Pavements Task Force | which also oversees the Bituminous Surfacings Research, Asphalt Research and Pavement Structures working groups.
- Project Delivery Task Force | which also oversees the Prequalification and Contracts working group.
- Tunnels Task Force
