Collaboration between Waka Kotahi, The Road Efficiency Group (REG), local government and the transport sector is essential for the success of the AMDS programme to develop and deliver a national, shared standard for roading asset management.
The success of the AMDS programme to develop and deliver a national, shared standard for roading asset management relies on a collaborative effort between Waka Kotahi, The Road Efficiency Group (REG) and the wider local government and transport sector.
Waka Kotahi is accelerating the development of the data standard to ensure sector benefits can be realised sooner.
In collaboration with SMEs from maintenance contractors and professional services consultants that include; Fulton Hogan, Downer, Higgins, WSP, we are developing inventory assets and the management of the asset over its lifecycle (eg defects, conditions, observations and controls).
The standard is being released in assets groups by cycle for feedback from the sector. These cycles will produce outputs in usable formats (xls, xsd, pdf) to support the toolsets used by our sector partners.
The AMDS programme is testing and validating the ability to implement the standard with the RCAs, maintenance contractors and professional services through our prototype activities. This will provide the information required to develop a repeatable model to implement in July 2022.
Prototype work started with Marlborough Roads in collaboration with Fulton Hogan, HEB, WSP and Waka Kotahi. The number of prototype sites has expanded recently to include Wellington City Council and Masterton District Council and later in the year looking to include Northland Transport Alliance, therefore covering a good mix of small to complex sites. This ensures enough level of detail and impact is understood to move to the implementation phase with certainty. The prototype work is being developed in partnership with Company-X, to analyse and validate the data, and with thinkproject to develop the solution as the incumbent AMS technology provider.

As the provisional data standards are published, they will be circulated for feedback. After the four-week review cycle, the asset classes will be stabilised.
