New website puts roadworks on the map

WIRRAL Council has signed up to a national online mapping system which allows members of the public to view full details of all roadworks with a single click.  By visiting:-, people can find out if they are likely to encounter delays due to roadworks on any journey they have planned.  The details on the website tell visitors who is carrying out the works, when it is due to start and finish, the extent of any potential delay and contact details for the company involved. It will also show any diversion routes to show motorists how to move around potential delays.  Cllr Stuart Whittingham, Cabinet member for Highways and Infrastructure, said:- "This represents a massive forward step for the Council in delivering on our promise to develop a transport network and systems that are fit for the future.  Being part of this system will keep Wirral moving while the Council and the various utility companies carry out essential and planned improvements and repairs. It will also help the Council in co-ordinating works better so that any potential disruption is kept to an absolute minimum.  The advantages of being able to look on a map and see where roadworks are taking place or are planned are obvious and I think this will prove very popular and useful with residents and an extremely useful tool for the Council and our partners."

The system that works behind the website has been developed by a company called:- 'Elgin'. They say their product is "a unique, authoritative information resource for the public and the primary tool for streetworks and traffic management professionals.  It enables better coordination and planning of activities that cause disruption to traffic and residents, helps reduce congestion and keeps the public informed, while reducing costs for public bodies. We are delighted to have Wirral on board."
