State of Local Infrastructure

The State of Local Infrastructure (SOLI) is a key building block for Brampton’s future management of its infrastructure assets. SOLI is intended to provide the following information:

  • Details of the Asset Inventory – What do we own?
  • Valuation of the Asset Base (Replacement Value) – What is it worth?
  • Condition of the Asset Base – What Condition is it in?

The City’s total replacement cost of infrastructure assets is currently estimated at $7.0 billion, excluding land, distributed across 12 major service areas. The majority of the assets currently owned and operated by the City are considered to be in Good condition. The overall “Good” condition rating can largely be attributed to the City’s infrastructure being relatively new in age combined with the sound asset management practices the City has employed to date.

​​Summary of Brampton's Asset by Condition ($ Millions)

The following chart provides a snapshot of the overall asset condition. The conditions illustrated in the figure below represent the cumulative value of assets categorized in the five condition areas. Over 75% of the infrastructure assets in the City of Brampton are assessed in “Good” or “Very Good” condition with less than 10% of the asset base measuring “Very Poor” to “Poor” indicating some assets in these categories may require more immediate renewal/replacement considerations. The remaining assets, approximately 15% are assessed in “Fair” condition that show general signs of deterioration and require close monitoring and attention. The overall “Good” condition rating can largely be attributed to the City’s infrastructure being relatively new in age combined with the sound asset management practices the City has employed to date.

How does the City decide what to repair, what to replace, and improve?

Asset decisions are based on t​he robust information collected and analyzed throughout all City Service Areas.

  • 1. Age of Asset: for some assets, such as vehicles, playgrounds and streetlights decisions are based on engineered useful life and recommended maintenance schedule
  • 2. Condition inspection: Regularly examining conditions of major asset such as buildings, roads, bridges, stormwater pipes etc.
  • 3. Managing risks: Evaluating the chances and impacts of service failures, and addressing those risks
  • 4. Public input: Survey feedback, residents calling 311 to let us know about potholes, malfunctioning streetlights, etc.
