Highway asset management In Lancashire
Lancashire's transport infrastructure assets are the most valuable publicly owned resource managed by the county council, with a combined estimated value of over £10 billion as at June 2015. These assets are fundamental in helping the citizens of Lancashire to not only access a range of county council services, but also take advantage of the wide range of economic, health, social and recreational opportunities that are available to them. Without this infrastructure Lancashire would not function as a place to live, work or visit.
Within Lancashire, highway asset management has been defined as:
"A systematic approach to meeting the strategic need for the management and maintenance of highway infrastructure assets through long term planning and optimal allocation of resources in order to manage risk and meet the performance requirements of the authority in the most efficient and sustainable manner".
