Working with our highways customers we design and install infrastructure solutions that monitor road conditions and communicate ‘live’ information to road users. These new technologies actively manage traffic flow to increase road capacity without widening.
Comprehensive Asset Surveys provide the ‘as-built’ data needed for fully informed designs. Early consultation and collaborative planning with stakeholders and suppliers smooths the transition through design approval, construction and operational handover for gantries, masts, solar panels, and associated M&E that connects communication and lighting systems.
As incumbents on Highway England’s Collaborative Delivery Framework (CDF) and the Connect Plus M25 frameworks we have undertaken significant Asset Data Survey programmes along with design and construction of smart technology across the Midlands, North West, London and the South East of England.
Experience of high-speed traffic management, early contractor involvement, innovative methods and our customised local liaison techniques ensure a seamless transition from smart road construction to operation.
Smart Motorways and large construction schemes require a detailed understanding of the existing assets prior to the assessment, design and construction of appropriate solutions. Data obtained via surveys of the existing asset provide detailed as-built and condition information to inform the design and delivery of Smart Motorway schemes and Large Civil Engineering projects.
Collaborative input from erectors, operators and maintainers produces designs that are safe to install, operate and maintain. Our aim is to reduce maintenance through product selection, remote monitoring and the inclusion of safe access arrangements.
Quality and cost are balanced to provide the optimum solution for the life of the structure. Off-site fabrication, pre-assembly and innovative erection methods reduce impacts on road users during installation. Future proofing during design considers the potential for change and the impact it may have on durability and the specific access requirements. The aim is always to minimise network intervention and the impact on road users.
