As a condition of receiving funding assistance for road maintenance, we require the use of a road asset management system for treatment selection, which will include the following inventory data:
|Road conditions||Road features||
|Surfacing and rehabilitation profile||Carriageway||Asset age|
|Roughness||Pavement layers||Design lives|
|Classification (using the One Network Road Classification system)|
Roughness and condition rating surveys of all sealed roads must be undertaken at least every second year.
Condition rating surveys of all sealed roads carrying more than 2,000 vehicles per day are to be undertaken annually.
Condition rating of footpath and cycle networks should be at a sufficient frequency to support regular updates to the activity management plan, ie no less than three-yearly.
The inventory database must be updated as soon as practicable after any project that affects the network is completed.
For road condition rating work to be eligible for funding assistance, the raters acting on behalf of the approved organisation, or Waka Kotahi for its activities, must hold a current certificate issued by the New Zealand Institute of Highway Technology, following satisfactory performance at a rating training workshop.
Treatment selection is based on a methodology acceptable to us that takes into account the following (at the very least):
The objective of network user information is to support and influence transport choices that contribute to the achievement of the target mode shares for the network and to ensure safety, effectiveness and efficiency of the network through:
