Focus on streets

Highways authorities are using advanced imagery and artificial intelligence (AI) more and more to assess our roads. 

  • OS and Mobileye have created ‘RIACT' to crowdsource data and the built environment from fleet vehicles, and OS will showcase how it's using that data and AI in monitoring road conditions and increasing public safety.

During the afternoon session we'll be looking at underground assets:

  • The highway authority representative on the Street Manager Governance team will give a Custodian's view of Street Manager

  • Northumbrian Water and the Geospatial Commission will show us the North East of England's prototype National Underground Asset Register, emphasising the need to work with local authorities to capture good quality asset data.

The final session will be a workshop on OSMM Highways Network, accessing and using to best effect – and why an aligned street dataset is key.

Street Naming & Numbering  

The SNN Practice Working Group is working on behalf of SNN Officers to prepare Codes of Practice. We'll be looking closely at collaboration between local government and Royal Mail.

  • Ian Evans, Head of AMU Products & Licensing at Royal Mail Address Management Unit will take part in a session to discuss areas for improvement to achieve consistent working practices and shared standards.

  • We'll also have a one-hour facilitated session on ‘Everything You Wanted To Know About SNN But Were Afraid to Ask'. A solicitor specialising in local government law will be on the panel, alongside members of the SNN Working Group.

  • The SNN Working Group will also run an informal session to meet and chat with fellow SNN officers, plus bookable 1-2-1 slots for advice on particular issues.

See for the full agenda.
