The city’s roads and streets are all extremely valuable assets that provide citizens with the necessary infrastructure for travelling from one place to another in their vehicles. At the same time, they also act as a basic pillar of the transport network for all goods and services, and therefore as the backbone of our business economy. If we look at different environments, we can see the importance of having a good intercity road network and well-maintained streets in our cities. From a conceptual perspective there are various management-related aspects to consider that all road types have in common. If we take this idea further, we can say that when managing assets, we should start with basic common stages and then differentiate or clarify certain aspects in each model.
