AbstractPerformance indicators are an essential part of modern road asset management. The basic rationale for having measureable performance indicators is that limited availability of resources makes it necessary to allocate these resources as effectively as possible among competing alternatives; moreover, that considerations of safety, capacity, serviceability, functionality and durability are explicitly recognized.A comprehensive approach to developing performance indicators should consider the basic rationale, a balance in use and reporting, efficiency and effectiveness, a tie to transportation values, objectivity in the measurements used and the stakeholders involved in the development of a framework.
