Many local highway authorities across the UK are facing challenges in managing their vital, yet, ageing highway assets effectively, as a result of year-on-year budget reductions, and a shortage of skills and other resources. Our dedicated highway asset management service is positioned to assist highway asset owners in mitigating these challenges.

We can help you to:

  • Achieve value for money and make efficiency savings through the implementation of a high-performing highway asset management system
  • Optimise and extend the usable life and performance of your highway assets within budgetary, political, economic, and environmental constraints

  • Define practical, realistic, and achievable levels of service, risk content and risk criteria
  • Reap the benefits of implementing a highway asset management plan, including value for money and efficiency savings
  • Maintain regulatory and statutory compliance and reporting
  • Implement robust financial management systems, statutory valuation and financial reporting

We’ve already successfully worked with Bath and North East Somerset Council to develop and implement their Highway Asset Management Plan. We also supported Wokingham Borough Council in developing an effective street cleansing programme as well as a review and update of their Highway Safety Inspection programme.
