One of the defining principles of highways asset management is maximising the opportunities provided by digital technology to manage information and data, improving capabilities to better manage the performance of the road assets. Gaist’s unique technology captures a wide range of information from just one survey, providing a range of information traditionally only accessible by multiple (and costly) surveys. Covering full road and footway condition, and asset condition and location, road markings and much more from one survey, increasing numbers of local authorities are turning to Gaist to facilitate greatly improved highways maintenance provision.
Following a request from States of Guernsey (States Works), Gaist were pleased to be able to conduct a full asset data collection services for road markings and traffic signs covering the whole 260 miles of roads across the Island. Delivered through HighwayView on their AssetStream platform at no extra charge, Gaist provided high quality data to enable effective prioritisation of work according to the condition of the assets.
The key point of differentiation between the work with Guernsey and alternatives is the quality and accuracy of the data, providing a best-in-class solution to the common problems of incomplete or unreliable data. This is all captured from one driven survey, making multiple surveys a thing of the past and providing better data at a reduced cost.
What’s more, the accurate, geolocated asset and lining data we provided to Guernsey is underpinned by high definition, panoramic imagery easily accessible through HighwyView. This enables their in-house expertise to go further, enabling asset managers to clearly view their networks (including lining and assets accounted for in the survey) from the desktop.
But don’t just take our word for it, this is what the customer at Guernsey had to say about it:
“We were particularly impressed with the accuracy and quality of data recorded, together with the tools provided to process that information into an easy-to-use format for our maintenance teams. This enabled us to prioritise work according to the condition of the assets. In terms of deliverables throughout the process, both sales and technical staff were professional and knowledgeable, delivered a high-quality work, on-time, and on budget. States Works would consider using Gaist again in the future.”
