PCSG | Pothole Spotter | Explainer video
The Pothole-spotter project and its aim to revolutionise the way councils undertake highways maintenance launched in January 2017. The system uses high-definition cameras, mounted to refuse collection vehicles (RCVs), buses and bikes to capture regular, detailed images of the same sections of the highways network.
DTW were commissioned by PCSG, who lead on communications for the project, to produce an easy-to-understand infographic and animation about the system which was delivered in partnership with Thurrock, York and Wiltshire councils and with private-sector SMEs, Gaist and SOENECS.
This pioneering Pothole-spotter trial which aims to help councils find a ‘smarter’ way of managing and reducing potholes and other highways defects, has secured a prestigious award. The Department for Transport-led project was named winner of the ‘Best Use of New Technology’ category at the Highways Awards 2017.
