Labour Intensity Safe Roads Improved Access Know your Network Increased Investment S’HAMBA SONKE PROGRAMME (SSP) PILLARS S’hamba Sonke
1 • The S’hamba Sonke Programme has been designed to address the spatial inequalitiesin the country an in the process create job opportunities, improve rural transport and its infrastructure,and open the rural economyto new investment and development. SSP OBJECTIVES
2 • The strategic objective is to ensure efficient investment in provincial roads to implement the Road Infrastructure Strategic Framework of South Africa (RISFSA) through implementation of S’hamba Sonke Programme and other related road infrastructure asset management programmes. SSP OBJECTIVES
3 • S’hamba Sonke Programme will address the needs of the youth for empowerment, education and job creationthrough a multi-pronged approach that creates job placements and internship schemes and sets aside 60% of employment and empowerment in infrastructure and other projects for youth and promote youth employment and training incentive schemes. SSP OBJECTIVES
To create incentives for Technical Innovation and Higher Efficiency • To better respond to a new approach to Road Network Management. • To achieve better roads for the same money, or to use less money for assuring the same Level of Service. • To ensure more stable funding for Road Maintenance • To make Road Maintenance a more attractive business for contracts • To satisfy the needs for Road Users • From counting cubic meters to checkingService Levels • From “policing” contractors to Partnership arrangements • From Maintenance Engineer to Road Asset Manager ROAD ASSET MANAGEMENT REFORM
“A fundamental requirement of all asset management systems is information on the assets. Utilities in this position must therefore address the six “whats” of asset management (Vanier, 2000 & 2001)” 1. What assets are owned? 2. What are they worth? 3. What is the deferred maintenance? (In this context, deferred maintenance is taken to be an overview of the amount of expenditure required to bring the maintenance and repair under control, rather than being a measure of renewal backlog). 4. What condition are the assets in? 5. What is the remaining service life of the assets? 6. What should be fixed first? ROAD ASSET MANAGEMENT
When assessing the data that could be used in this type of analysis, the Road Authority must consider both the quantity of data and the quality of data. The collected data should be assessed according to specified confidence criteria, which can include some or all of the following aspects of data quality:Accuracy : is the available data reliable?Completeness : What is the data coverage; are there any gaps?Currency : is the data sufficiently up to date?Consistency : Is there any contradictory data or information?Compatibility : Is the data produced on the same basis as other similar information?Credibility : Does the data align with local knowledge or typical ranges of values?
Decision Support Process starts with the planning and undertaking of road condition assessments • RAMS – systematic approach • Greater accuracy = more confidence to generate maintenance strategies
BASIC QUESTIONS RAMS COMPONENTS • What is the condition of the roads from a Surfacing, Structural and Functional point of view? • Condition Data informs maintenance strategies – must be collected quickly and accurately.
Stewardship: The practice of enforcing data policies, standards, and procedures. • Storage and warehousing: The practice of providing systems for storing data in a way that enhances data management efficiency and makes quality data readily available for use. • Integration: The practice of combining data from disparate sources for the purpose of providing unified view and information
Asset Management applied to the whole life of assets Operate, Maintain,Improve Identification & Feasibility Planning and Design Construction Disposal Deterioration/ Maintenance Cycle Initial or restored condition Deterioration and/or damage Maintenance or renewal Condition after deterioration
The objective of developing Road Sector Indicators is to improve the efficiency and sustainability of the road asset management and maintenance practices performed by the Road Authorities. The Intervention will address:- Identify the extent network Collection and submission of data on traffic volumes and road condition that can be used to assist in measuring the efficiency of investments in roads. Continuous update of Road Asset Management Plans (RAMP). Demonstration of efficient maintenance on defined, selected road network Introduce the Multi-Year Plan for the selected road network
PURPOSE OF MAINTENANCE Maintenance reduces the rate of road deterioration, it lowers the cost of operating vehicleson the road by improving the running surface, and it keeps the road open /good condition on a continuous basis. Effectiveness Measures the capability of an organisation to define, agree and meet appropriate operational objectives Efficiency Ability of an organisation to meet its objectives using minimum resources.
EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENTS Road Authorities need to identify efficiency improvements; where an efficiency improvement is any activity which improves the ratio of outputs to resource inputs. Such improvements may arise by producing the same outputs with fewer inputs and deliver more road maintenance with the same resource. Road Asset Management Plans (RAMP) is one of the key improvements we have identified which sets out the level of service we intend to provide and investment required. .
Quality & Measurements Quality cannot be managed- Quality is the result of good management PRMG Meeting
ACCURATE, QUICK DATA COLLECTION “SEMI – AUTOMATED” “MANUAL” • Improvement on manual methods • Less Subjective • Faster 150 – 300 km/day • Subjective • Time consuming • Strenuous • Requires Experience 10 – 40 km/day
TRAFFIC SPEED DEFLECTOMETER • KEY ELEMENTS • Deflections • Profiles (IRI, mpd, rut) • Imaging • Auto Crack Detection • Geometry • GPS • Non Subjective, Scientific Tools and Technology used for condition assessments enhances data integrity – Leads to more confidence in generating advanced road maintenance strategies.
Integrity of RAMS dependant on data quality and entry while dealing with copious volumes successfully • Integrated system – KEY TO ALLIGN RAMS PROCESSES
The strategic objective is to ensure efficient investment in roads by knowing WHAT TO DO, WHERE and WHEN TO DO IT!
PERFORMANCE COMPONENT OF PROVINCIAL ROAD MAINTENANCE GRANT (PRMG)
IDEF0 Process Model (Integration Definition for Function Modelling) Controls C3 C4 C1 C2 C1 - Division of Revenue Act (DORA) C2 – Conditional Grant Framework C3 – Policy Statements C4 – Standards, Guidelines etc. I1 – Community Expectations I2 – Project List (Condition Data) I1 O1 Inputs Outputs O2 I2 O3 A0 O1 – Job Creation O2 – Maintenance of Roads O3 – Contractor Development A0 M1 – Project Team (Road Authority) M2 – PRMG Allocation(R10bn) M3 – Procurement & Contracting M4 – Technical Capacity & RAMS M1 M3 M2 M4 Mechanisms Inputs : items that trigger the activity Controls : guide or regulate the activity Mechanisms: systems, people, equipment used to perform the activity Outputs : results of performing the activity
By the end of MTEF these outcome we will be able to identify and quantify the network that the PRMG is funding.
