BOURNEMOUTH, CHRISTCHURCH AND POOLE COUNCIL
BCP Council Revolutionises Highways Maintenance with Alloy
“We were especially impressed by the flexibility Yotta’s Alloy software offered us. As it is cloud-based and runs as-a-service, we don’t have to worry about infrastructure and IT services costs, or the time and resource needed to run and manage the system on-site. At the same time, however, we can link all our data into it in order to achieve greater insight across our asset types.”
-Simon Legg, Street Scene Operations Manager, Borough of Poole Council
PARMMS – TOWNSVILLE CITY COUNCIL
Townsville City Council chooses PARMMS to optimise pavement assets

WARRINGTON BOROUGH COUNCIL
YOTTA HELPS WARRINGTON BOROUGH COUNCIL OPTIMISE HIGHWAYS ASSET MANAGEMENT
“Yotta’s Horizons software has allowed us to take highways asset management to a new level over the past few years. We used it to provide impact analysis, identify optimum planned maintenance budgets; produce evidence-based reporting and develop forward programmes for approval. This process played a key part in preparing a bid for extra government funding and providing the business case for the council to use prudential borrowing to maintain our most valuable asset, our road network.”
-Jim Turton, Engineering & Flood Risk Manager, Warrington Borough Council
TYNE & WEAR AUTHORITIES

TELFORD & WREKIN COUNCIL
Telford & Wrekin Council Transforms its approach to highway asset management
“When we assessed Horizons, we quickly saw its potential to help deliver a more holistic approach to asset management in line with the Department for Transport (DfT) emerging standards. Moreover, we clearly saw the opportunity to bring together a wide range of highways management data sets to inform strategic decision-making and to generate lifecycle planning scenarios that help us optimise highways maintenance and maximise the funding we receive from the government to deliver it.”
-Gareth Pegg, Highway Asset Management & Capital Programme Team Leader, Telford & Wrekin Council
CITY OF RYDE
Alloy drives proactive maintenance of City of Ryde green bus shelters

-John Williams, Highway Asset Manager, Wigan Council
VicRoads / Fulton Hogan
Visualisation aids highways maintenance strategy
Horizons helps VicRoads utilise detailed network condition data, enabling the authority to assess how far its budget would extend with existing resources and therefore what schemes of work it should opt for. The use of Horizons also enables VicRoads to adapt to changes in government funding and help shape future budget discussions by presenting proof of what the network will look like under different budget scenarios.

SUFFOLK County Council
Suffolk County Council’s Part-Night Lighting Project Success
By 2025 Suffolk aims to achieve a 65 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions. This is in addition to an immediate target of four per cent a year reduction that is already required from council operations. In support of Suffolk County Council’s aspirations to be the greenest county in the UK, the street lighting team devised a number of initiatives to reduce energy costs and carbon emissions from its street lighting stock. Part-night lighting was identified as potentially a significant contributor to these targets.
