Road Transportation Unit

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

EQUIP’s Road Transportation Unit (RTU) provides councillors, chairs, and mayors with the knowledge that their council is delivering best practice in activity management planning under the ONRC framework.

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.
