Abstract

Transportation networks are important public infrastructures because they enable economic and social activity. Trends in contracting the maintenance of such assets have caused a shift in governance from a public body to market-like arrangements and changed the roles and responsibilities among asset owner, asset manager and service providers. Basic assumption of this research is that collaboration between contractors in road infrastructure is needed and can be stimulated through facilitating joint coordination on a network level, based on a social costs incentive. Based on a literature review design components and possible techniques are identified. Then the concept design and testing methods for a dynamic network-based tool to facilitate strategic infrastructure asset management is proposed.
