This report considers the issues and possibilities of a data framework, incorporating road use data and network performance data, that could apply for all road authorities and provides guidance on a way forward, taking into account the current initiatives in the public and private sectors. There are initiatives at both the national government level as well as in the private sector to develop data consolidation arrangements. However there are issues of governance, ownership and financing that have to be resolved. The study finds that there is no immediate need to develop a new data framework for road use and network performance as it is likely that the existing road information systems are more than adequate for the requirements of each road authority. Rather it suggests that road authorities should adopt a uniform approach in responding to requests for access to data. New network performance data should be integrated within the existing road use information systems that exist in each road authority. There is therefore a clear need to link up the road use data with the network performance data activities within each road authority.
