TSC Co-hosts Smart Infrastructure Event

On Thursday 27th April, the TSC partnered with InTouch Ltd, Lancaster University, Carillion and Balfour Beatty Mott McDonald to host the Smart Highways Drainage Showcase at the Future Cities Urban Innovation Centre in London.

The Smart Clean project is a collaborative R&D project part funded by InnovateUK and NERC and focuses on creating SmartWater; a system that delivers a step-change in the quality and quantity of data available from our urban water infrastructure. The information that the innovative SmartWater solution can provide, transforms our understanding of how best the network can be maintained, by providing accurate data, real time alerts, predictive data modelling and clear, user friendly visualisations.

The showcase was a great success with delegates obtaining further in-depth information about the Smart Clean project and new and efficient methods for reducing flooding and contaminants on the Highway through improved accuracy of data and increased decision support capabilities.

The event heard from various notable speakers:

  • Steve Berry OBE, Head of Local Roads, Light Rail and Cableways Branch at Department for Transport
  • Karla Jakeman from Innovate UK
  • Eifion Jenkins and Toby Hiles from the TSC
  • John Walden, InTouch
  • Nigel Davies, Lancaster University
  • Andrew Sweetman, Lancaster University
  • Shawn Taylor, Bristol City Council
