Road Transportation Unit 

Councils and their leadership teams manage significant assets which connect communities in essential ways.  

EquiP has launched a Road Transportation Unit (RTU) which will provide councillors, chairs and mayors with the knowledge that their council is planning for, and delivering best practice in activity management planning and that value for money is being delivered with fit-for-purpose levels of service.

EquiP’s Road Transportation Unit 

A key part of the offering is to work with both governance and management to assess strengths and support continuous improvement processes as councils implement transitional activity management plans.    

Working with proven roading engineers and economic modelling professionals, EquiP has commissioned best of breed experts to support governance and management in assessing:

  • readiness to implement the ONRC;
  • infrastructure planning and activity;
  • a fit-for-purpose roading network; and
  • economic development modelling to improve the network.   

Once complete, our assessment will identify:

  • a menu of opportunities for forward support to integrate good practice;
  • additional tools and resources to assist; and
  • prioritised areas for action in transitioning to the new business as usual frameworks.

Alongside this, the RTU will be enabling peer to peer mentoring to identify and transfer emerging best practice in the sector. E-learning, webinars and carefully selected online tools will enhance the learning opportunities ensuring genuine sector progress.
