Decision details
Procurement of journey time monitoring software

Decision Maker: Acting Assistant Director for Highways and Transport

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

• The journey time data is used for both service and corporate monitoring purposes as a key performance indicator (KPI) for congestion;

• The journey time data is also used in transport modelling to provide a comparison between current observed journey times in Hereford with different transport and/or land use scenarios to help assess efficacy of different options;

• The Highways Analyst software produced by Basemap provides the most flexible solution for our basic data requirements but also provides much greater scope for data analysis and assessment of transport schemes than alternatives, providing a great deal of added value;

• It requires minimal officer time to extrapolate and analyse the data;

• The Council has used Highways Analyst to monitor the journey time KPI for 3 years and this will ensure consistency with historic journey time reporting maintaining the integrity of the observed long term trends in journey times;

• There are cost savings associated with securing a 3 year subscription with Basemap, by way of a fixed rate for the three year period (no inflation increases); and

• The council is not bound by a contract with Basemap, and the annual subscription can be cancelled at any time with no penalties.
