Effective management of transport assets is crucial to the safe and efficient operation of any urban centre.
Despite this many transport agencies and governments are still lagging behind when it comes to developing effective asset management frameworks to maintain and extend the crucial asset lifecycle.
This white paper, by HDR Inc. explores the key opportunity areas where organisations can begin implementing a comprehensive approach to strategic transport asset management, thus minimizing maintenance costs and delivering safe, reliable services.
In the recent Federal Budget, it’s clear to see the billions of dollars being invested into Australia’s transport and smart city future. These factors are driving the future of Australia’s transport system to not only improve infrastructure, but to also drive and enhance maintenance and assessments on ageing assets.
With this in mind, the Strategic Transport Asset Management Summit 2017 has been designed to prepare asset managers and transport leaders to maximise asset life cycle and deliver reliable services.

Ahead of the inaugural Strategic Transport Asset Management Summit 2017 we chat to Florentina Mihai, Manager of Route Planning at Main Roads Western Australia (MRWA).
As part of her role at MRWA, who manage over 17,800km of roads over a span of some 2.6 million km2 in Western Australia, Florentina sets out the customer facing service framework that is complemented by an asset sustainability approach.
In this article Florentina shares with us details of MRWA’s comprehensive transport asset management plan that has been recently reworked to meet ISO55000 standards, and also delves into how technology and community engagement are helping prioritise maintenance works.
Effective management of all transport assets, from roads to bridges and rail lines, is crucial to the safe and efficient operation of any urban centre, or indeed, nation.
Despite this, many transport agencies and governments are still lagging behind when it comes to developing effective asset management frameworks to maintain and extend the lifecycle of these assets, which crucially support economic growth and productivity.
Ahead of the inaugural Strategic Transport Asset Management Summit 2017 we explore 6 key ways in which transport asset management and maintenance can be streamlined and optimised to ensure safe, efficient operations.
In this presentation from Strategic Transport Asset Management 2017, Professor Bijan Samali Director, Centre for Infrastructure Engineering at the Western Sydney University explores:
- The importance of carefully maintained timber bridges, especially to rural Australia
- Proactive bridge management and the development of effective assessment systems for quantifying safe capacity
- Asset stress testing and repair best practice based on modern methods
In this presentation from Strategic Transport Asset Management 2017, Mina Gerguis, Asset Program Manager at VicTrack explores:

- Growing talent by finding the right blend of employees who are able to communicate the asset management story and move away from a standard engineering function
In this presentation from Strategic Transport Asset Management 2017, Peter Tobin, Senior Geotechnical Engineer at Wollongong City Council explores:
- An overview of track conditions across passenger rail and heavy haul to analyse the damages of track assets over the years
- Insights into the importance of improving the ground and determining soil conditions to maintain stability of track assets and investment into the right construction materials
- Investigating the demands of the public of transport structures, and it’s impact on economic growth and management strategy of assets
In this presentation from Strategic Transport Asset Management 2017, Richard Moore, Head of Asset Management Development at Transport for London explores:
- Why the ISO? – how to secure executive management on board to see the ISO as a journey rather than just a qualification
- Digital railways and new technology - Maintaining the maturity of your asset management framework in times of change
- Insights into LU’s best practices and advancements into asset management to drive better decision making
