The need to preserve our roadway pavement infrastructure is paramount to insuring the viability of transportation of people and goods. This requires ever increasing investments because the road infrastructure is typically the most valuable asset owned by public agencies. The consequence of the lack of systematic maintenance and renewal is accelerated deterioration of the asset condition which then requires a more expensive treatment to return the asset to a serviceable condition.

Road infrastructure managers are confronted with the following challenges:

  • Budget pressures from other infrastructure and social needs have resulted in a substantial infrastructure deficit.
  • The necessity to plan the treatments in such a way that the level of service remains acceptable throughout the entire life-cycle fo the asset.
  • Municipal and local governments typically have limited taxation powers and often lack in-house specialized technical expertise.
  • Necessary coordination of road construction activities with other asset management activiteis such as road system expansion, underground utilities, lighting, traffic management and safety improvements.

While facing these challenges, the technical issues often play a subordinate role for several reasons. The technical qualifications of the staff in road authorities and road construction contractors, as well as their professional skills, are often at a high level. In December 2017, the Ontario Government passes Ontario Regulation 588/17 Assert Management Planning for Municipal Infrastructure which sets out asset management implementation and reporting requirements. While similar requirements are not currently required in other Canadian provinces, it is likely that they will soon be required.
