Investment Modelling

Investment Modelling

PROJECT BRIEF

With their highway maintenance budget coming under pressure, South Gloucestershire appointed Metis to utilise investment modelling techniques to build a business case to defend the budget.


OUR APPROACH

  • Work closely with South Gloucestershire officers to understand the current maintenance strategies and historic performance of their carriageways, footways, drainage, street lighting, traffic signals and highway structure assets.
  • Utilise Metis’ investment modelling tool, Regenerate – Investment Modeller to model the implications of different budget scenarios on the future condition and the need for reactive maintenance on all highway assets.
  • Develop a robust business case using the modelling results to articulate the consequences of funding cuts to decision-makers.

PROJECT OUTCOMES

Through this project, South Gloucestershire Council has:

  • Identified the needs-based budget for all highway assets.
  • Quantified the maintenance backlog against a realistic target level of service.
  • Used the business case to keep current highway maintenance budgets in contrast with forecasted budget reductions.
