The West Yorkshire LTP3 Transport Asset Management Plan (TAMP) sets out our direction and approach to ensure effective asset and network management.
We need this Plan because asset and network conditions have reached a critical tipping point where condition will be severely reduced as a result of declining funding, severe weather and congestion. National and DfT policy recommends we produce a TAMP as the best way to identify the issues and to set the direction for what should be achieved. The Plan will ensure that actions are put in place to help address the current problems.
The Plan is written to enable West Yorkshire residents, transport users, public transport operators and local businesses to see how we intend to improve the management and maintenance of our transport assets. We will use the Plan to support our investment decisions and for securing additional funding sources.
The Plan complements the existing maintenance manuals and framework guides such as the national codes of practice and District Council’s own Highways Asset Management Plans (HAMPs). The Plan is intended as a strategic document whereas the manuals, frameworks and HAMPs provide the detailed technical requirements.
Delivery of the Implementation Plan will help address the problems that we are now seeing in congestion, potholes and declining asset condition. The first Implementation Plan proposes greater collaboration and procurement to maximise the value for money and efficiency of our investment to work towards offsetting the reduced budgets.
The Plan supports the MyJourney West Yorkshire Local Transport Plan 2011-2026 (LTP3). LTP3 is an ambitious plan to improve the transport system across West Yorkshire that we need to encourage economic growth, reduce carbon emissions and improve quality of life.
