First ever common European asset management framework approach that enables consistent and coherent cross-asset, cross-modal and cross border decision making
First ever common European asset management framework approach that enables consistent and coherent cross-asset, cross-modal and cross border decision making

Achieving a well integrated, optimal performing transport infrastructure network in Europe is a key element in the White Paper on Transport’s overall ambition for a single European Transport Area in 2050.

The Coordination and Support Action AM4INFRA aims to overcome the legacy of European transport networks under which they have been developed incrementally (and mostly fragmented) over time within the specific setting of mode and country under various policies and service levels. Building on ongoing bottom-up actions, best practices and contemporary experiences of four National Infrastructure Agencies that are considered frontrunners in the development and application of asset management in their networks governance, it will deliver the first ever common European asset management framework approach that enables consistent and coherent cross-asset, cross-modal and cross-border decision making in the context of the White Paper on Transport.

The Innovations of AM4INFRA

- To provide National Infrastructure Agencies (NIAs) with insight to how asset management practices would support the development of network management strategy, adoption of decision making processes, operational requirements and how asset knowledge can be uitilised;
- To provide NIAs with a common, practical framework for a life cycle and risk based Asset Management approach capable of governance on the highest aggregation level of (cross-modal) network considerations;
- To enable NIAs in acquiring meaningful data and sharing knowledge and good practices to achieve “learning by doing” and continuous improvement of the operations....

CEDR - Conference of European Directors of Roads

AM4INFRA is supported by the CEDR, in particular Task Group N2 on Asset Management. The AM4INFRA consortium has been assigned the lead to develop concrete tools and procedures that the Task Group can elaborate on in view of their NIA constituencies. The Task Group will serve as a soundboard on the content of the results.
