Highway Maintenance

Many aspects of highway maintenance have been transformed over the last sixty years.

This has been driven by the development of computerised highway asset management systems, the development of analytical methods of assessing road surface condition, the development of new materials, changes in public sector procurement to bring in the private sector and improved integration with other transport policy areas.

Highway maintenance has embraced these changes but the decisions made by the highway engineer are still at its heart and perhaps this has not changed at all. Roads remain one of the most important physical assets for which public authorities are responsible. Effective maintenance and management is crucially important to both users and the community at large and its safe and efficient operation provides vital support to the national and local economies.
