Street Works Planning Portal (SPP)

25th March 2021

 SPP is an integrated planning application which is map-based and capable of automatically presenting multiple datasets (based on pre-determined algorithms) in a number of different views or data layers. Each data layer clearly visualises information relating to particular aspects of a job, e.g., proximity to rail crossings, highway authority, speed limits, winter gritting routes, street works restrictions, bus stops, traffic lights, etc. As such, the portal meets our objective of improving planning quality and efficiency by:

  • Reducing the time and effort required to consult multiple data sources – automated data mining
  • Identifying and addressing risks and stakeholder issues at planning stage
  • Reducing abortive work and re-planning
  • Improving planners’ understanding of jobs, and the constraints and challenges faced by our operational teams
Back to all.
