We guided and supported our client to develop and implement a road infrastructure asset management system, and produced an options paper for setting up a core road management system complete with recommendations, budgets and time scales for implementation.
This included a network database and systems for pavement management, routine maintenance management and business management. We also developed and delivered:
- A draft level of service system linked to the road hierarchy
- A programme and documentation for delivering asset management using performance-based contracts and public private partnerships (PPP)
- Metrics to assess the roads authorities’ readiness and capability in asset management and PPP
- Training in asset management including risk management
Work is ongoing, but the future for Kenya’s roads sector is more certain now the foundations of an effective and efficient approach to road asset management and maintenance have been established.
