The Asset Management Data Standard (AMDS) project is a collaboration between Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and the Road Efficiency Group (REG) to improve the management of land transport infrastructure asset information that supports best decisions about New Zealand’s land transport assets – our roads, highways, bridges, cycleways and what sits on and under them.

Road Efficiency Group (REG)

The project will develop and implement a national data standard for land transport assets. It will establish a common language the sector can share – a way of defining and describing land transport assets, their attributes, characteristics, properties, location and performance to enable efficient and effective end-to-end life cycle asset management.

Promoting greater data standardisation and sharing in land transport will realise significant benefits through improved efficiencies, network planning and resilience.

The AMDS project will prepare the foundations for the land transport sector to work towards a digital engineering and BIM (Building Information Modelling) approach.

The data model

12 blue circles with the names of the concept schemes inside placed around in a circle with lines connecting them in the middle.

The first release of the data model is now available. We invite you to play around with the model to explore the asset types being proposed, their structures and relationships. You can also register to provide feedback on the model by visiting the AMDS feedback page.
