  • Advances in the Implementation of Road Asset Management in Chile

    Chile has a road network of 85,221 kilometres. It largely consists of interurban roads and some sections in urban areas of strategic interest. The network is administered by the Highways Office, apart from 3,000 kilometres which operate under private concessions. Management of the road assets (divided into 9 different categories) has become an essential task over the past decade, as mass use of the systems has increased, bolstering this strategic area of the Highways Office.

  • Common Framework for a European Life-Cycle Based Asset Management Approach for Transport Infrastructure Networks

    This article describes the framework as proposed and shows how it enables transport managers to perform activities not only cross assets but also cross modes and across borders.

  • Maintenance Programming for Performance-based Contracts using the HDM-4

    In Mexico, performance-based contracts were first introduced in the mid 2000. They have largely been used for the rehabilitation of road sections, to ensure that certain standards are met and maintained throughout the lifetime of the contract. As a general rule, they also specify a minimum remaining life of the pavement subsequent to the conservation stage. This article describes these contracts.

  • ISO 55001 Certification - An example from the UK*

    The article will describe the background to that certification and the requirements of ISO 55001 for a service provider in such a highways environment will be discussed. The route taken in aligning practices and procedures to ISO 55001 will also be described along with some of the benefits of taking that approach.

  • Requirements for the Education of Road Asset Managers - A PIARC Approach*

    Asset Management is a relatively new discipline. It was only established at the beginning of this century. However, the foundations were laid as early as the 1980s and 1990s. They were the result of the efforts of experts from several countries and disciplines to develop a common concept and language with the aim of supporting organizations to creating value from the available asset.
