Transportation agencies around the world are faced with a long list of challenges. Some of the most pressing challenges are:
The challenge of preserving the huge investments made in building transportation networks.
The challenge of setting up maintenance priorities in an integrated manner.
The challenge of best using the available funds in a cost-effective manner.
The challenge of meeting the policy goals with respect to the desired level of performance.
We believe that the best approach to overcome these challenges is to utilize an asset management approach in managing the transportation assets in integrated way. AASHTO defined asset management in its November 2002 Transportation Asset Management Guide as “a Strategic Approach… driven by policy goals and objectives and relies on systematic assessments of asset performance and cost in making decisions on future actions”.
