    Kent County Council
    Case study

    As part of Kent’s 8,700km of highway network, approximately 223 km of vehicle restraint systems are maintained to ensure public safety while on the roads. Inevitably, barriers get damaged due to road traffic accidents, which Kent County Council must repair. Kent County Council and Amey approached map16 for an innovative VRS mapping solution.

    The Approach

    Using map16 tablets, Kent County Council digitally mapped their entire highway network and logged all associated assets. Any defects and areas of VRS that were found to be damaged were recorded within the system, and interpreted into the asset map. These areas were then addressed and repaired by the council accordingly, and then audited to ensure repairs were accurate.

    The Benefits

    Properly maintained vehicle restraint systems are paramount for the safety of drivers using high speed roads. During the inspection process, a total of 542 defects were found and logged, full record sets are loaded to the system. Barrier type, service condition and spec compliancy data can also be easily found within the system and can be exported with the click of a button.
