The Roads & Transport Directorate commissioned the Road Asset Benchmarking Project to provide a snapshot of the current reported condition of Regional and Local Roads in NSW, an estimate of the shortfall in funding necessary to bring them to a satisfactory condition and specific recommendations about rectification of the problems identified.
Latest Benchmarking Surveys
Additional Benchmarking Surveys have been carried out every two years to identify changes that have occurred and to establish trends in asset management. Each two years, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2017 and 2019 two reports titled Road Asset Benchmarking Project - Road Management Report and Road Asset Benchmarking Project - Timber Bridge Management Report have been published as part of this project. The 2019 reports were launched at the NSW Local Roads Congress in June 2020.
