Property data provider and analyst CoreLogic says that significant efficiency gains for New Zealand's roading infrastructure will result from its "milestone" deal with the NZ Transport Agency.

Under the multi-year deal CoreLogic Road Data will be licensed to the NZTA, enabling all participants in NZ's road transport sector "to work from a common and authoritative centreline representation."

CoreLogic says its Road Data is "NZ's most complete and current 'real world' dataset, relied upon by commercial and government clients for its detailed roading intelligence – such as traffic flows, structures, intersections, turn restrictions and routes.

"Updated daily (alongside CoreLogic national property and address information), it also includes new roads captured directly from subdivision plans."

Property data provider and analyst CoreLogic says that significant efficiency gains for New Zealand's roading infrastructure will result from its "milestone" deal with the NZ Transport Agency.

Under the multi-year deal CoreLogic Road Data will be licensed to the NZTA, enabling all participants in NZ's road transport sector "to work from a common and authoritative centreline representation."

CoreLogic says its Road Data is "NZ's most complete and current 'real world' dataset, relied upon by commercial and government clients for its detailed roading intelligence – such as traffic flows, structures, intersections, turn restrictions and routes.

"Updated daily (alongside CoreLogic national property and address information), it also includes new roads captured directly from subdivision plans."

CoreLogic won the contract via an NZTA open tender intended to secure "an authoritative national road network dataset" to better support its statutory functions into the future. Says CoreLogic: "With expansive responsibilities, covering the performance and safety of our highways, ensuring an efficient network, planning and forecasting for its growth plus allocation of funding, they needed a robust dataset to support their decisionmaking on the maintenance and investment in NZ's roading infrastructure."

Beneficiaries of the agreement extend beyond the NZTA to the Ministry of Transport, road controlling authorities (local councils), contractors working for those parties, and the public, the company says.

NZTA's Rebecca Schulz says that CoreLogic's key dataset "will support the agency and our RCA partners to make better, more informed investment decisions."

CoreLogic says it works closely with leading Australasian road asset management software company, RAMM Software – creator of the RAMM (road assessment and maintenance management) software used by all of NZ's RCAs. The project has resulted in a new dataset that combines the road location with road condition.

RAMM Software GM Graeme Norman says that the CoreLogic/NZTA partnership will enable RCAs "to easily integrate their local road network with NZ's state highway network at no additional cost.
