OUR PROJECTS CONSISTENT CONDITION DATA COLLECTION
CLIENT: Te Ringa Maimoa
DATE: 2021 - 2023
STATUS: Waka Kotahi has approved 100% funding of the $18.5 million needed for national delivery.
The Te Ringa Maimoa Consistent Condition Data Collection (CCDC) project is a game changer for local road asset management in New Zealand. Te Ringa Maimoa is leading a national approach to sealed road condition data collection, using advanced scanning technologies to deliver high quality and consistent data for asset management and investment decision making.
In 2021-24, approximately $1.5 billion will be spent on local road sealed pavement maintenance, resurfacing and rehabilitation. However, the current approach to sealed pavement condition data collection across local road networks is outdated, inefficient, variable, and does not reflect current international best practices. This results in inconsistent and non-comparable outputs across local authorities and hampers the national investment decision-making processes.
The Consistent Condition Data Collection (CCDC) project will improve both local and national asset management planning and decision-making by:
- Specifying the minimum requirements for automated pavement condition inspection for roughness, rutting, texture, cracking, and geometry on sealed roads.
- Implementing national data standards and specifications to ensure consistent data collection, accuracy, processing, and management.
- Establishing a National 'Centre of Excellence' approach to data collection and quality assurance to ensure consistency.
- Undertaking data collection on local authority road networks grouped into large geographic contract areas led by Te Ringa Maimoa, as opposed to the current ad-hoc approach across different local authorities.
The expected benefits include:
- Better lifecycle management and performance.
- Enhanced asset management decision-making.
- Improved road safety outcomes.
- Value for money in both data collection and forward programmes.
- Health and safety risk elimination.
WHAT DID WE DO?
Rationale, led by Senior Advisors Gene Ollerenshaw and Chris Bowie, has supported CCDC from inception, developing the original Indicative Business Case and subsequent Detailed Business Case gaining endorsement to implement the recommended approach from Te Ringa Maimoa governance and Waka Kotahi Board.
Since 2022, Rationale has been responsible for implementation project management along with substantial market and sector engagement, financial and technical modelling, multiple rounds of making the pitch to various managers and decision makers, right up to the Waka Kotahi Board, not to mention getting all 67 local authorities on board.
With CCDC now confirmed for the 2024-27 National Land Transport Programme Period, Rationale is supporting the transition from implementation to delivery, leading development of the commercial model, procurement planning and tender process, and now supporting change management to establish the team and governance structure to successfully lead CCDC over the next six years.
WHAT WAS THE RESULT?
CCDC achieved a major milestone in September 2023 with the Waka Kotahi Board approving 100% funding of the $18.5 million needed for national delivery during 2024-27.
This national investment recognises the significant return on investment expected from CCDC and the improvements it will make to local and national decision making. It also removes this cost from the local authority programmes, meaning it can be implemented across New Zealand.
Rationale continues to support the programme, through the drafting of drafting procurement and contract documents, and getting ready to go to the market to procure suppliers to do collect all this data using world-leading software and technologies.
