Highways Asset Management

Highway Infrastructure Asset Management Plan (HIAMP) 

The Highway Infrastructure Asset Management Plan (HIAMP) document outlines our policy, strategy and plans for highway infrastructure management and maintenance, and was initially published in 2017. Following a mid-term review to ensure we were continuing to align with best practice, an updated Management Plan was approved in July 2023.

Asset management is widely accepted as a means to deliver a more efficient and effective approach to the management of highway infrastructure assets through longer term planning and timely maintenance interventions. It also supports making the case for funding and better communication with stakeholders, facilitating a greater understanding of the contribution highway infrastructure assets make to economic growth and the needs of local communities.

Highway infrastructure assets combined (for which Trafford Council are responsible) are the most valuable publicly owned asset managed by Trafford Council. They provide a universal service to every single resident and are central to a place where business can grow and prosper. 

Since the publication of the HIAMP, the Resilient Network on page 44 has been reviewed and an updated map produced.

If you would like to read more about the HIAMP, the strategies, and methods used, you can download the Highways Infrastructure Asset Management Plan leaflet.

There is currently a highways investment programme, detailing the list of roads scheduled for improvements this financial year.

HIAMP Communication Strategy

The new Highway Infrastructure Asset Management Communication Strategy document for Trafford Council has been produced to raise awareness and understanding of the council’s highways asset management objectives. It describes how we manage our assets and how our approach is actively communicated through engagement with relevant stakeholders.
