This article from the Wired Magazine – “Smart Highway Glows in the Dark”, is fascinating.
I wonder how many of us are even contemplating the impact of advanced technology on our infrastructure management planning.
Yes, we have a section in our Asset Management Plan for future demand – but do we consider this type of tech, its impact on future service levels, and its impact on future service delivery costs.
If you read the article, you will see that improvements in road safety will drive the introduction of this sort of technology.
It is food for thought as we start the journey of updating asset management plans to support the 2015 LTP.
