Highways England is a government owned company responsible for operating, maintaining and improving England’s 7,000km of motorways and major trunk roads. Highways England also provides real-time traffic condition and planned road improvement information for millions of road users — around 30 per cent of all UK traffic and 70 per cent of all UK heavy-goods traffic.

A key innovation for Highways England is the deployment of ‘smart motorway’ schemes on vital parts of the strategic road network. This includes:

  • dynamic lane management;
  • variable speed limits;
  • comprehensive CCTV coverage;
  • new uses of existing and new signs and signals; and
  • revised safety, operating and maintenance procedures.

IBI Group works closely with other leading contracted providers and suppliers to ensure Highways England receives superior service and data-driven intelligence. Some examples of our project work include:

  • Defining asset data requirements to achieve both corporate and asset management objectives.
  • Delivering innovative remote sensing interactive solutions facilitating web-based access to and analysis of over 115 terabytes of imagery and ground and aerial LiDAR.
  • Collection, processing and delivery of 15,000 carriageway kilometres of vehicle-based imagery and LiDAR serving our asset management solution.
  • Leveraging applied research and development, and integrating our unique knowledge of managing physical assets with sensor technologies and software solutions to deliver successful practical trials and deployments.
  • Data advisory for scoping, recording, validation/verification and assurance.

Our range of asset-focused data management services provides quality, reliable and actionable information supporting our client’s regulatory compliance and safety obligations, as well as enhancing operational efficiencies and improving operational expenditure forecasting.

A new mobile ecosystem is changing the way we interact with and move throughout our cities.
