In 2018 ScenePro was successful in winning a European tender to develop and deliver a Road Safety Triage Survey service to the Police and four Local Authorities within the Humberside Area. This requirement was part of a regional road safety improvement strategy implemented by ENGIE, the Regeneration Partner of North East Lincolnshire Council.
To deliver the contract, we employ our combined 80 years of road safety, casualty reduction and collision investigation expertise to survey and identify issues on the A and B class roads network that have the potential to become causal or contributory factors in future road traffic collisions. To enable this complex and highly detailed audit to be delivered successfully, our company has designed purpose-built survey vehicles, fitted with multiple high-resolution cameras linked to our own Audit 365 version of our accredited ScenePro CI 200 IMU based datalogging system. These vehicles are capable of recording detailed images of the highway and roadside assets combined with synchronous high accuracy data, creating a unique audit record for every 100mm of carriageway surveyed. During surveying, our team digitally mark the data to register any observed issues of interest and from this, we produce comprehensive written reports. Our multi format outputs are uploaded to Local Authority computers enabling highways engineers to review reports, data and images and when appropriate, remedial works can be factored into existing road maintenance schedules. Project lead and ENGIE Traffic Team Manager Debbie Swatman commented: “The Road Safety Triage Survey project has served to enhance existing road maintenance strategies. This pioneering project has enabled highways engineers to rapidly triage potential road safety issues without leaving their office and to better target our resources, saving money and adding value to our operations. Overall, there has been a marked improvement in the safety of the regions roads network”. ScenePro offer cost effective Road Safety Triage Surveys as an external service provider and alternatively, we are able to supply hardware and training to enable local authorities to improve their own highways audit processes.
