Resilience, demand management, analysis and modelling
When severe weather damages our transport links, the impacts on daily life, communities and the local economy can take months and sometimes years to recover from.
The Data Discovery Centre at Traffex 2-4 April 2019 is showcasing projects that are using data to help:
- highways managers identify weak points and secure funding to repair the network before it fails
- individuals to maximise their flexibility in choice of travel during severe weather
- transport planners to update their models for travel behaviours to better reflect today’s society
- public sector organisations collaborate and apply data analytics capabilities to improve services
The UK’s Offices of Data Analytics
We’ll be exploring the work of the regional Offices of Data Analytics in helping public sector organisations manage data, risk and collaboration more effectively.
