Allocation of resources across asset classes

This report presents the approaches used in different countries for the allocation of resources based on road asset management and the prioritization process for maintenance expenditure across different types of assets (pavements, bridges, geotechnical structures, etc.)

Answers to an international survey on the origin of resources and on the mode of allocation were provided by 35 road owners from 20 different countries.

Case studies in appendix present the approach followed in seven countries (Australia, Japan, the Netherlands, South Africa, Sweden, United-Kingdom, USA).
