Performance Measures for Highway Road Networks (2012)

Performance measurement in transportation departments has long been used as part of pavement and bridge management systems but is increasingly becoming a core component of public sector management processes, as well as extending to applications in construction and maintenance, and operations and safety programs. All Canadian provinces and territories use some form of performance measures to evaluate their road networks, however the type of performance measures used and the implementation practices vary significantly between jurisdictions. Performance Measures for Highway Road Networks identifies performance measures that could be used by all jurisdictions in the country to effectively manage rural highway infrastructure in the areas of transportation system preservation and safety.

The recommended performance measures will provide a means to compare roads in different jurisdictions to one another, and assist senior officials and transportation professionals in decision-making on planning, evaluation, investment, asset management and day-to-day operations. The recommended performance measures could be used to communicate with and report to the public regarding the importance and performance of transportation systems.
