The Future of Highways Data post written in June 2014 was created for the speed learning session of the same name at the Future Highways Conference 2014. A year on, the content remains relevant as many local authorities are moving from a reactive to proactive highways maintenance programme.
One of the biggest challenges is securing additional funding. This latest case study video from Yotta featuring East Sussex County Council shows how they have put their highways asset and condition data to use with the help of Yotta Horizons and secured significant extra funding for their highways maintenance activities:
In last year’s blogpost, the audio and vido clips from Jason Russell, and Lancashire and East Sussex County Councils give a good overview of the strategic and operational challenges local authorities face, and how we can use existing highways asset data to overcome them.
As part of the Future Highways conference on 11th June 2015, you’ll hear first hand from Chris Dyer at East Sussex County Council, and have the opportunity to take part in a first of its kind practical afternoon workshop with Yotta, Surrey County Council and London Borough of Southwark.
Through two very different case study examples, the workshop will explore how you can use your data to drive engagement, and develop a robust evidence base for additional funding.
Look forward to seeing you on June 11th ;-),
