Providing road works information online

Shane O'Neil, from Elgin, gave a presentation on roadworks.org on 10 January 2014.

Shane explained that roadworks.org (a service offered by Elgin) is the largest single source of local roadworks information in the UK, publishing over 2 million roadworks records annually.  Benefits included:

  • providing data and tools for utility companies and local authorities to coordinate and plan their works, thereby reducing the impact on congestion and journey times
  • enabling public bodies to share services and reduce costs by using a peer developed common platform, which can be custom integrated into their own local service
  • informing the traveling public, elected representatives, transport authorities, emergency services and the haulage industry about current and future roadworks.
