The One Network Road Classification (ONRC) was designed to standardise the performance of our roads throughout New Zealand, aiming to address historical inconsistencies, and promote economic growth.
This can only be achieved if all Road Controlling Authority (RCA) are monitoring and measuring their roads with the same tools and standards consistently over time.
These performance measures support that consistency. They have been developed by subject experts from the Road Efficiency Group (REG) – a collaboration between Local Government New Zealand and the NZ Transport Agency. When used with the ONRC Performance Measures Performance Measures Reporting Tool (ONRC PMRT), they are a significant resource to help asset managers better understand their network and tell their investment story.
Data is imported into the ONRC PMRT from RAMM by RCA administrators. Crash Analysis System must be updated before an import from RAMM. After an import administrators check for data validation messages and fix any issues in RAMM. Asset managers use the performance measures when developing their business cases for the Regional Land Transport Plan. Regional Champions and experts from REG are available to support you.
Asset managers should also read the ONRC Performance Measures General Guide, which provides strategic overview and context. Further guidance in the form of case studies will be provided for operational use of the ONRC, specific to the field operations and data management.
When using the performance measures, it is important to remember that while there is an element of compliance, they are intended to form the backbone of a thinking process.
The measures complement and interact with each other – you will find your investment story by considering the data across your network and in the national context, rather than focusing on individual performance measures in isolation.
