The NHVR’s Strategic Local Government Asset Assessment Project (SLGAAP) will fund more than 200 engineering assessments under Round 1.
NHVR Freight and Supply Chain Productivity Executive Director Peter Caprioli said the 232 assessments covered assets owned by 69 local governments.
"After a successful pilot where 100 assets were assessed, SLGAAP Round 1 is now underway with appointed engineering firms working closely with local governments in the asset assessment process,” Mr Caprioli said.
“Importantly the asset data collected by the project will provide valuable information to both road managers and industry.
“Currently, there is no central database of local government assets and the work undertaken by the Project is a starting point in compiling bridge and culvert data.
“The project will also produce engineering reports for each asset, and this will support road managers in their heavy vehicle access decision-making.
