Highways Agency launches programme to improve information

Rebecca Thomson

The Highways Agency has launched a programme to improve the way it uses information and data.

The Road Information Framework, as it is known, draws data from disparate sources and shares it across the Department of Transport, Highways Agency and Local Highways Authority.

It aims to collect raw data on journey times and congestion and turn it into useful information.

The agency hopes to assess the success of new initiatives with the programme. It wants to see whether new projects, such as allowing the use of the hard shoulder during busy periods, reduce journey times.

It is using business intelligence software by Microstrategy to analyse data.
