Roading Efficiency Group (REG) Update

  1. 1. Roading Efficiency Group (REG) UPDATE
  2. 2. REG: Where did it come from?Established to implement the recommendations of the Road Maintenance Task Force…Four general areas for improvement identified:  Adapting the business models used to deliver maintenance, renewals and operations  Improving procurement practices, also in support of new business models  Improving prioritisation and optimisation through level of service differentiation  Consistently introducing enhanced asset management practices
  3. 3. Enhanced asset managementpracticeRequires: Effective planning and delivery to achieve value for money objectives, eg  early tendering opportunities  awareness of the annual programme and better timing of works  improved knowledge sharing A consistent road classification system and levels of service across the whole network Greater collaboration between asset owners
  4. 4. Strong asset managementpractice Includes enabling the use of  innovative services,  products, and  methods of procurement
  5. 5. REG: A work in progressGovernance Group establishedWorkstreams include:  Asset Management and Service Delivery  Collaboration & Clustering  One Network Classification  Policy and Investment
  6. 6. One Network Road Classification Purpose - develop an integrated classification for NZ road network (state highways & local roads) to:  assist with planning, investment, maintenance and operational decision making  support collaboration and cooperation  support customer focused approach to seamless movement of good and people Joint local government/NZTA project that builds on National road classification work & State highway classification Timeline - engagement with the sector mid-year & final classification by December 2013.
  7. 7. Collaboration and ClusteringWorking together Conversations have been initiated in numerous areas throughout New Zealand looking at different forms of collaboration Conversations have taken place between the NZTA and local authorities and also between various local authorities REG provides assistance to structure collaboration including establishing a framework and facilitating As a start, many regions are investigating opportunities by having regular conversations and sharing knowledge and practices
  8. 8. Collaboration and Clustering(cont.)Current progress Six initiatives have accepted REG support and are developing business cases They are Northland, Western Bay of Plenty, Waikato, Gisborne, South Canterbury, Central Otago Marlborough Roads, Nelson and Tasman regions are also progressing well with their conversations Collaboration is taking many forms from sharing knowledge at one end of the spectrum, to integrated shared service delivery at the other
  9. 9. Collaboration and Clustering(cont.)Three key areas which build towards collaborative work: Operations: reviewing policies and plans between road controlling authorities to improve consistency in service delivery and seeking the ‘one network’ experience (e.g traffic operations centres in major centres) Asset management: developing strategic or investment plans by drawing on each other’s experience Service delivery: establishing joint ventures or other formal arrangements between the parties
  10. 10. Future workThe Task Force recommended that the NZTA convene auser group or an established group (eg a NationalStrategic Asset Management Group), drawn from acrossthe sector to develop requirements for improved datainput, transformation of the data into useful, repeatableand meaningful information, dissemination, andeffectiveness in the use of data, focusing on areas suchas:  requirements for data, data-based systems (eg RAMM – Road Assessment Maintenance Management database), dTIMS (Deighton’s Total Infrastructure Management System) and technology platforms  measurements to assess the effectiveness of different road maintenance projects and new materials  measures of asset consumption and its causes  measurement to enable better timing of interventions  road classification.
