1Spatial and Northern Gas Networks (NGN), the gas distributor for the North of England, were proud recipients of the award for Application of Digital Technology at UKSTT’s annual awards this month. UKSTT (the United Kingdom Society for Trenchless Technology) is a registered charity involved in the development and promotion of Trenchless, or “No-Dig”, techniques to reduce the impact of unnecessary road excavations. The award was won for Northern Gas Networks’ and 1Spatial’s Smart Signage, Lighting and Guarding project which involved the development of a software programme which can lessen the impact of essential roadworks through the creation of instant plans that are sensitive to local conditions. The approach could dramatically reduce the time, travel, cost and carbon emissions involved in excavating roads and minimise the impact of essential roadworks.
