Description

The need to preserve our municipal 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. 

While the majority of municipal agencies have systems to management infrastructure such as pavements, bridges, water and waster water, fleet vehicles, etc., the assets are typically management individually with each competing for available funding. Canada has been at the forefront of pavement management since the late 1970s and have led through the development of tools and guidance such as the Transportation Association of Canada pavement design and management guide. However, over the past 20 years the focus of many agencies around the world as been to adopt a wholistic approach where all assets are managed to achieve agency goals and objectives. This approach ensures that available funding is distributed where it can be most cost-effective.
