Developing a common language and data structure for the transport and local government sectors to use, creating a consistent way of defining and describing land transport assets to enable better investment decision-making.
Transport asset data is inconsistent and incomplete – as a result it is difficult to exchange, compare, benchmark and analyse land transport data. Duplication, inconsistency or rework, and a lack of efficiency and effectiveness affects our ability to make informed investment decision-making on behalf of New Zealand taxpayers and ratepayers.
Asset Management Data Standard (AMDS) is a joint collaboration between Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and the Road Efficiency Group (REG) to improve the management of land transport information that supports best decisions and enables better investment decision-making about our roads, highways, bicycles, cycleways, and what sits on and under them. The standard will enable a common language and data structure creating a consistent way of defining and describing land transport assets.
