Asset management is the way an organisation manages its assets to deliver its strategic priorities and service needs effectively to its residents.
The Royal Borough's highway assets include:
- Roads (658 km).
- Footways (800 km).
- Bridges / structures (300).
- Street lights etc (17,000+).
- Traffic signals (57 sites).
- Road drains (26,000+).
- Public rights of way (300+ km).
- Highway trees (40,000+).
There are three documents that form the Highway Asset Management Plan:
- Highway Asset Management Strategy (HAMS) - A high level strategy for Highway Assets, initially focused on carriageways and footways.
- Highway Maintenance Management Plan (HMMP) - Sets out policies, standards and methods for maintaining all highway assets.
- Highway Safety Inspection Manual (HSIM) - Determines where inspections are needed and where interventions are required for all highway assets.
