Most major and other roads have a local dimension. In particular, this includes ensuring that “first and last mile” issues are addressed. This aspect highlights the need for integrated planning involving all levels of government.
Of the 344 councils sampled in 2013, 217 updated their data and a further 52 councils have provided their data for the first time. This brings the total sample size covered in this report to 396, which is 70% of all councils.
The 396 councils are managing a total of $104.8 billion in infrastructure for the four local road asset categories included in this report – an increase of 6.6% over the 2013 report outcome.
