Carrying out roadworks in the largest and busiest city in the UK represents a significant challenge for TfL.
Not only are roadworks a significant frustration to many, but they also generate 3,000 hours of severe disruption and £2 billion worth of delays each and every year. In conjunction with Plexal, TfL invited innovators to help transform roadworks in the city as part of London RoadLab
Specifically, TfL wanted to make roadworks:
The Immense team worked with TfL to develop a digital replica of transport infrastructure across several London regions.
This was enhanced with further data sources to create a digital representation of traveller and vehicle movements across the city. TfL could then access this digital world through a web-based interface to design and simulate different scenarios for planned roadworks and maintenance - ultimately improving the speed and accuracy of decision-making.
“Bringing in innovation from the market directly contributes in helping us to deliver the goals set out in the Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy. As such, we continue to share some of our key problem statements to bring in a wide range of innovators such as Immense through programmes like London Roadlab to test their solutions on our network.”
Rikesh Shah, Head of Commercial Innovation at Transport for London
