The Ministry of Infrastructure has launched a road maintenance and road assets management system on Friday. The system is a collection of software tools that map out the road infrastructure, allowing the Ministry to keep a close eye on the conditions of the roads. The ministry says this will put an end to reactionary road maintenance and allow the ministry to properly assess its road networks and take preventative measures and plan its expenditure. The ministry is working in collaboration with a Finnish consultancy firm. Planning and budgeting will be key aspects of the road maintenance and road assets system.
