Road Visual Condition Assessment
Road Visual Condition Assessment Manual

Recently WALGA issued a new Road Visual Condition Assessment Manual. The new manual was in response to industry feedback, and introduces changes to the rating scales and collection fields, as well as a new Road Condition Index calculation method. The revised rating scales are compatible with the current IPWEA and Austroads initiatives.


RAMM has updated the Pavement Rating module to meet the requirements of the new manual. We have produced a video for you which shows how to enter new condition data. It also contains an overview of the asset management process.


In addition, any historical condition data previously recorded has been retained for enquiry purposes. RAMM is currently investigating what conversion options, if any, are possible for this historical data.

Asset Management

To make efficient asset management decisions, road managers need up-to-date condition and traffic volume data for all network roads.


Savings can be achieved if sections of a road in good condition are not treated, just because another part of the same road needs it. Roads can be segmented into sections with consistent condition and purpose. Consistent treatments may then be applied along their entire length.


Road managers decide the appropriate treatment, if any, for each segment of every road in the network. The costs are compared and the treatments prioritised so that the LG receives the greatest benefit for the spending of their road maintenance budget.


The RAMM three step process simplifies this for road managers.

Pavement Rating Assessment is used to enter length-based condition data into RAMM.


Treatment Length Dynamic Segmentation creates recommended Treatment Lengths with consistent performance and purpose.


Works Selection generates a programme of recommended treatments and costs based on level of service parameters set by the road manager.

Pavement Rating Assessment
Pavement Rating Assesment is used for assessment of the Condition of a Road. The standard assessment method in RAMM is based on measuring the length or number of defects, such as cracking or rutting over a 10 to 100% inspection length. This is then extrapolated out to determine the Condition of the entire length.
Treatment Length Dynamic Segmentation
Treatment Length Dynamic Segmentation divides Roads into Treatment Lengths. You can run the process several times using different criteria. Each time you run the process you can compare the existing Treatment Lengths with those created by the process. You can then accept or discard the new Treatment Length set per Road.
Works Selection
You use Works Selection to plan your programme of works for your Network. Scenarios you create produce a recommended Treatment programme based on parameters and options you have set. You can then view, adjust, report and graph the projected treatments and costs. You set the optimum Scenario as the Committed Works Programme.
