Traffic volumes across the United Kingdom have grown to over 4 million vehicles a day. However, road investment has not increased to meet the demand, resulting in increased congestion, noise, and poor air quality across the road network. To help provide a better network with smarter roads, National Highways realized that they needed to provide more information about how they generated savings, how they progressed through construction, and how they delivered their projects.
After considering their options, they chose BCDE to develop a common data environment and project template to help roll out complex regional infrastructure projects. BCDE made it easier to manage all project information in accordance with government standards, providing a reliable single source of truth for all information that could be shared across all project participants. National Highways manages over 550 major projects on BCDE, involving more than 3,000 users and many hundreds of thousands of documents, drawings, and 3D models, achieving efficiencies of GBP 1.4 million.
