WSO2Con EU 2016: Reducing Disruption to the Road Network Through the Cloud


Published on

Transport for London (TfL) manages the principal roads across London and is responsible for coordinating roadworks to minimize the impact of disruption. In effect we have to balance the available road network capacity with the level of roadworks we allow at any given time.

The system used to complete this function is called LondonWorks and as part of a wider intelligent transport program, the opportunity to replace the current solution was taken to provide improved information to the coordination teams as well as to introduce more automation to support the process and improve identification of areas where further investigation should be undertaken. We are collecting more data and information types as well as using real time alerting to give insight to system users in order to support better coordination and monitoring of the roadworks from planning through to delivery. The opportunity has been taken to adopt a cloud first approach to maximize opportunities to use new technologies and minimize costs.

The new solution based on WSO2 Cloud Solutions and ESRI Geographic Information System (GIS) will go live later this year. Bringing the business stakeholders closer to the delivery of technology and becoming more agile has changed the relationships of users with technology, resulting in a more usable and integrated solution. Using LondonWorks as a pathfinder for the broader concepts of how to deliver operational technology (OT) over the increasing variety and volume of data available from Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives is leading to the acceleration of the adoption of these technologies.
