Well-maintained roads create access to schools, healthcare and jobs. Through Estrada, nationwide road data enables better management.
To provide a centralised view of road conditions across Timor-Leste

Building and maintaining roads leads to increased economic activity and employment. It also means better access to agricultural land, markets, schools, health centres, and other services, and reductions in travel times and travel costs.
The Estrada platform strengthens the Timor-Leste Ministry of Public Works' oversight over roads and related infrastructure. It facilitates the collection and analysis of an extensive set of data about road conditions, including risks, weather, traffic, and more. Importantly, it's a central tool to allow the Government to budget and plan its road maintenance priorities.
The Estrada Road Asset Management System (RAMS) supports data collection and road asset monitoring, enabling central and municipal offices to take action on what's needed. Though updated information on roads and their conditions, decisions can be made that are cost-effective, well informed, and economically beneficial for the future.
Catalpa leads the overall development and implementation of the Estrada RAMS for the Government of Timor-Leste and in partnership with VicRoads, an Australian Government department that has worked internationally for more than 30 years in sharing best practice road transport solutions.
