Highway asset management planning
We detail the approach that we use to deliver the Local Transport Plan policy and asset management strategy in our Transport asset management plan.
We also undertake detailed lifecycle planning for the major highway asset groups. We measure condition of the assets, model their deterioration, prioritise maintenance works, plan when to undertake maintenance, engineer suitable maintenance treatments then carry out the works. Each year we review our assumptions, the performance achieved and refine our approach.
These lifecycle plans set out the performance requirements, deterioration, maintenance strategy, budget and process used in prioritising maintenance.
The Transport Resilience Review released by Department for Transport (DfT) recommended that local highway authorities should develop a resilient network which would be prioritised for maintenance and other measures to minimise disruption during extreme events including but not limited to events of civil disturbance or extreme weather events.
As a result of this recommendation a resilient network was identified in Herefordshire which you can view as a layer in our Highways and Public Rights of Way map.
