Austroads’ Australasian Data Standard for Roads seeks to harmonise transport information across Australia and New Zealand. This initiative can support local government asset management planning and maintenance. The sharing of harmonised data can help all road manager improve the effectiveness of asset management activities.

Austroads is now supporting national implementation of the Data Standard with a range of actions to help road managers use and maximise value from harmonised data. Austroads is supporting local government to locate, supplement and transform their data enabling access to dashboard insights and metrics related to asset maintenance and investment decision making.

This webinar will outline how local road managers can use the data standard and engage with collaboration activities, to provide access to new asset management and maintenance insights with minimal impact on workload.
