Highway surveying company Yotta DCL has signed a four-year contract worth around US$3.61 million with the UK Highways Agency to survey and monitor some 140,000km of motorway and other major roads across England.
As part of the agreement, Yotta DCL will perform a traffic speed condition survey (TRACS) to determine the condition of the road surface, assess the areas in particular need of repair and determine where immediate action needs to be taken. The company will use its new state-of-the-art Tempest highways data capture vehicles to carry out the survey and will also participate in the development of new algorithms to produce more accurate modelling of the road surface deterioration.
