Highway Infrastructure Asset Management

Highway Infrastructure Asset Management Plan (HIAMP)

This Highway Infrastructure Asset Management Plan (HIAMP) sets out how the Council will best manage the highway network taking into consideration customer needs, local priorities, asset condition and the best use of available resources.

This presents the Council's strategy for the management of our highway assets as at November 2016 and allows planning over both the short and long term, whilst delivering a minimum whole life cost approach to our Highways assets.

Public Satisfaction

National Highways and Transportation Network Survey

The National Highways and Transport Network (NHT) public satisfaction survey collects public perspectives on, and satisfaction with, Highway and Transport services in Local Authority areas. For details of the current survey, visit:  2016 survey results page .

Current Ranking

In West Yorkshire, Calderdale are ranked 3rd.

Nationally ranked 59th out of the 106 councils which took part in the survey.

It is a unique, standardised, collaboration between Highway Authorities across the UK enabling comparison, knowledge sharing and the potential to improve efficiencies by the sharing of good practice. It gives the Council:

  • a better understanding of how it is performing in the eyes of the public;
  • a consistent datum for setting service levels and a means of measuring the impact of service improvements;
  • access to the best performers and the opportunity to learn from the good practice of others;
  • full transparency of data for benchmarking purposes.

The NHT survey is undertaken each year in association with Ipsos MORI.

This involves the distribution of around 3,000 questionnaires throughout the district. The results of the survey are published in October.

Highway Infrastructure Maintenance Schemes

Candidate schemes for each asset group will be identified from studies of the condition data applicable to that asset group.

Programs of work for each asset group will be prioritised using the factors shown in the Highways Infrastructure Asset Management Plan. 

For simplicity these have been grouped together under the mnemonic CASSEM which stands for - congestion, accessibility, stakeholder, safety, environment and maintenance. 

The prioritised list of schemes will be the basis of the yearly programme of works for the individual assets which will be defined once the funding available has been finalised.

Highways Risk Register

Highway authorities are required to manage a variety of risks at strategic and operational levels.

The likelihood and consequences of these risks can be used to inform and support Calderdale’s approach to asset management and inform key decisions regarding performance, investment and implementation of works programmes.
