About this event

We know that DfT are carrying out audits in some authorities to confirm that practice on the ground reflects what local authorities have said when completing their self-assessment.  Now is therefore a good time to take stock and prepare yourselves for future years.  No-one wants to be in the position of slipping from a Band 3 to a Band 1!

Can you really claim to be a level 3 on lifecycle planning if you don’t have complete and good quality data across all elements of the network?  What does it mean if your data is incomplete or out of date? 

What about your approach to managing current and future risks associated with the highway infrastructure assets or establishing a resilient network, or implementing HMEP guidance on highway drainage assets? All of this requires you to have a comprehensive and accurate set of data.  What conclusions might DfT draw should they carry out an audit in your authority?
To quote Steve Berry of DfT, “data is one of your key assets and is so important to everything you do as highway authorities”. So we know that this will become a critical element of future incentive fund approaches. For those authorities in London that are not subject to the Incentive Fund, this still represents good practice. 

So, for this series we are going to look from a practical perspective at key data requirements and the potential implications the lack of a comprehensive data set might have for your authority in the future.  

Add to this our ever popular magazine update session on all things highway asset management then this is an event that you really cannot afford to miss.  As always there will be plenty of opportunity for you to ask questions and network with colleagues from other authorities that might help you in your improvement journey.

Who should attend?

Our events are of interest to Senior Highways Engineers, Highways Asset Managers, Heads of Service and Portfolio Holders from transport and highways areas and anyone else involved in strategic planning, finance and decision making relating to highway infrastructure assets of who might be involved in seeking to develop an efficient and effective highways service.  In particular, the event will be of interest to:

  • Local Authority highway asset managers and those responsible for developing and implementing highway asset management strategies and policies
  • Local authority finance, transformation, change management and performance management staff
