Trimble’s AgileAssets software helps transportation leaders understand future needs of highway structure assets
National Highways, the government-owned company that manages the motorways and major A roads of England, has extended its contract for Trimble’s AgileAssets cloud software.
The software includes a decision-support solution that helps infrastructure asset managers improve their understanding of future maintenance needs of bridges and other structures.
National Highways uses the software to forecast the condition of bridge assets on England’s strategic road network and deliver reliable bridge infrastructure. It also helps identify infrastructure renewal projects that bring the most significant benefits in multiple areas, including public safety, financial stewardship, economic development, and environmental responsibility.
National Highways manages more than 23,000 highway structures, including ten tunnels, on roadways that carry more than four million vehicle journeys per day.
Since 2015, the software has been used for roadway and structures management of the M25, the orbital motorway circling greater London. The 250-mile-long network carries 73 million journeys a year, and comprises four tunnels, 2,500 structures—including bridges, culverts and overhead gantries—and 140,000 other highway assets.
“Resilience, cost-effectiveness, and sustainability of public infrastructure have long been a key focus at Trimble,” said Cyndee Hoagland, senior vice president of Trimble’s Owner and Public Sector.
“Now, with an even broader range of digital technologies to support our customers in managing the full lifecycle of their assets—from design and construction to operations and maintenance—we are helping organisations advance toward their long-term goals for delivering safer and longer-lasting infrastructure.”
