2012 – Slovakia – Sustainable Maintenance in Road Administration Based on Asset Management


2012 – Slovakia – Sustainable Maintenance in Road Administration Based on Asset Management

Asset management is an issue which is implicated in several sectors of a national economy in Slovakia. Competition, regulations and new conditions on the open European market require from the road agencies to solve the issues connected with the effectiveness of the rejuvenation and management at a high rate obtained assets.


The regional road administrators struggle with the volume of roads in their sphere of authority and limited budget to secure a functioning rural road network. Without an asset management system a lots of funds flow in wrong assets while on the other side lots of socio-economic benefits are lost due to poor condition of other assets. That combined with the request that their maintenance plans have to meet the requirements of sustainability principles led to a design of a working improvised asset management system to fulfil the role of a proper asset management system.
