Decision details

Digital Highway Inspection Report

Decision Maker: Executive Member for Transport and Planning

Decision status: Decision Made

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Purpose of Report: To give an overview of possibilities to improve our highway inspection, work identification and works realisation through the adoption of a remote survey and highway asset management system. A preferred product and route to procurement will be detailed in the report.

The Executive Member is asked to consider the possibilities detailed in the report and comment on its aims and approach and endorse the route to procurement that has been identified.


This item was deferred from 8 September to 8 December 2016  and then 9 February 2017 as the initial scope of the survey had been expanded and needed further analysis before a report could be presented. 


It has now been deferred to the decision session on 9 March 2017, as the relevant information is still being collated and discussions taking place.  Unfortunately the proposals will not be ready in time for the reporting deadlines in respect of the 9 February 2017 decision session.



Resolved: That the following be noted and endorsed;


(i)           The approach outlined in the report and Annex 1, to make recommendations for future approaches and the usage of digital highway inspection methods.

(ii)          The longer term development of efficient and effective highways works programmes based on digital highways data and the lead role CYC is playing nationally in the development of innovative technologies.

(iii)        That a future paper be brought to the Executive Member to highlight progress in the usage of the digital data, the DfT trial and our development of the requirements of the new code of practice.

Reason: Effective and efficient usage of highways maintenance budgets can be underpinned through the usage of innovative digital asset data.
