Pavement Management Services took part in the Road Maintenance Conference held on 25-26 June 2014 in Sydney.
Infrastructure and asset management are the core focus for local government across Australia. Australian governments spend more than $7 billion maintaining and renewing the road network every year.
This conference explored the different innovative delivery models which are being implemented across Australia and drew together lessons learnt to determine best practice in road maintenance.
Pavement Management Services’ Managing Director, John Yeaman, presented at the Conference, “Global Reviews to Boost Productivity and Drive Cost Efficiencies” and highlighted the need for an Intelligent Pavement Conservation Policy.
“A countries road asset is one of the foundations’ of its social and economic development and moreover, is constantly providing society with valuable services.
Given that roads can and should last for many years, the tax-payers trusts implicitly that today’s sacrifices (taxes) will offer future benefits for a longer period.
This confidence, however, appears to be increasingly less justified. In most countries, roads are deteriorating at an accelerated pace, mostly because of serious deficiencies in their conservation. “
