The Shoalhaven City Council manages approximately 1,263 kms of sealed and 394 Kms of unsealed roads in the south-eastern coastal region of New South Wales.
Talis assisted the Shoalhaven City Council asset management team to implement the latest v9 dTIMS pavement modelling tool to optimise road network expenditure. Talis worked with council staff to develop a bespoke pavement management model for the Shoalhaven road network. This involved analysis of condition data to determine deterioration patterns for the pavement and surface assets. Other model components such as treatment selection business rules were developed to replicate the current pavement management practices and processes of the council. The model was then coded and implemented in dTIMS and used to model current and future road network investment requirements.
The model creates pavement maintenance and renewal strategies for specifically defined road sections. The asset management team can use the system to calculate required budget levels to maintain the network to defined levels of service, and optimises the treatment strategies to ensure the condition of the network is maximised for the available budget.
Talis also provides hosting, training and support for the dTIMS system.
