UK Power Networks selects 1Streetworks software

1Spatial announced that it has signed a 12-month contract with UK Power Networks (UKPN), for its Traffic Management Plan Automation (“TMPA”) solution, under the 1Streetworks brand in the UK.

There were over 4 million low-speed road works undertaken in the UK per year. With the planning of these works using manual systems that have changed little in the last 30 years resulting in capacity issues and turnaround times for plans measured in hours, days and even weeks.

UK Power Networks has 190,000km of cables and delivers thousands of streetworks every year across London, the South-East and East of England, to maintain safe and reliable power supplies to 19 million people.

1Streetworks software has successfully been used in a Surrey trial to quote for and connect small power connections for customers. It reduced the time surveyors spent on labour-intensive streetworks design plans from hours to just minutes, while continuing to meet the high levels of safety and accuracy required under the regulations.

Paul Dooley, streetworks performance manager at UK Power Networks, said: “Planning streetworks to the high standards we expect takes time and few have tried to revolutionise the process during my 23 years in the sector. So, I’m excited about the potential of 1Streetworks to streamline complex traffic management plans, enable better communication with customers and highway authorities and improve the speed and accuracy of streetworks plans”.
