For many decades, Highway Authorities have been managing their investment in infrastructure assets, however, this has moved away from the traditional, purely engineering needs-based methods of management towards those more focused on the economic and social impact of investment decisions.
The organisations involved are subject to constant change and increasing scrutiny and there is a need to ensure any efficiency gains in the delivery of public services match the aspirational goals of strategic policy.
The emergence of policies regarding climate change, congestion reduction measures and planning regulations are increasing the demand on infrastructure asset performance and maintenance. All this has contributed to the need for more formal planning and resource management.
Our extensive knowledge of asset registers allows us to offer comprehensive and impartial services for examining existing data sets and to help define future collection strategies. We are expert in making better use of existing data, ensuring that data collection options and prioritisation for re-collection is in line with national and local policy. With Authorities’ time and resources already stretched, Wilson Pym May have been able to support the development of effective service threshold levels for assets and the production of asset management plans on a consultancy basis.

We have experience across the full highways maintenance market sector, therefore our advice and services are based upon actual experience gained as practitioners, therefore we can turn best practice guidance into practical solutions.
At Wilson Pym May, we have developed innovative techniques for combining conventional survey data sources (such as Deflectograph, TRACS or SCANNER surveys, skid resistance surveys and RMMS defects) with site “stress factors” (such as traffic and accident data) to identify and prioritise maintenance needs.
By using these techniques better business decisions may be achieved by providing decision makers with a sound basis for their financial support. Priority is given to schemes based upon real need rather than perceived need with Highway Authority spending increasingly subject to both public and central scrutiny, the ability to demonstrate prudent use of public finances is therefore of growing importance.
