Managing the national streets infrastructure
Streets are an essential part of a country's infrastructure. Managing the streets network plays a pivotal role in supporting economic growth.
GeoPlace plays a central role in coordinating the management of street related issues such as congestion, capacity planning, streetworks, incidents and maintenance. We work with partners to provide a holistic view of the streets network and collect data to coordinate and provide an evidence base for policy making.
We are responsible for the running the national hub for the National Street Gazetteer (NSG). The NSG enables highways authorities and statutory undertakers to coordinate street works in order to ease traffic congestion and disruption to road users.
We work closely with JAG(UK) and HAUC(UK) to manage the street infrastructure. GeoPlace and JAG(UK) have entered an agreement to work together to help local authorities identify common goals and deliver robust and efficient solutions. The partnership is giving local authorities a louder voice in presenting logical joined-up solutions to central government and other parties, driving forward better street services to the consumer by streamlining processes in the managing of street works as well as building upon the data that is held within the NSG.
