Re-flow Highways Stakeholder Survey 2019

Re-flow Highways Stakeholder Survey 2019
Share

Highways sector stakeholders agree we have a ‘roads crisis’ in the UK, blame planning, scheduling and bureaucracy for hampering progress and believe digital technology is being significantly underutilised.

The UK highways industry is one of the most reported on areas of our national infrastructure and it’s clear there are pervasive issues that are limiting our ability to meet the demand for services.

Research carried out by Re-flow across the UK Highways Sector has identified a number of areas that can highways employees feel could improve the management and delivery of our infrastructure projects.

Media reporting on the state of the roads in the UK was considered to be much fairer than the reporting on the maintenance of the roads, highlighting that highways workers feel that their work isn’t recognised justly.

Workers themselves agreed that we currently have a roads crisis, but they drew the line at calling it a national emergency.

They believe that the main challenges for effective road infrastructure projects are:

  • Lack of effective scheduling and monitoring
  • Too much bureaucracy
  • Poor communication between delivery teams.

Furthermore, 76% of respondents feel that digital technology in the sector is being significantly underutilised, highlighting another area for improvement

Mike Saunders Managing Director of Re-flow said: “While the situation is clearly difficult, the results have been heartening because there are things within our capabilities in the UK highway industry community to improve the management and delivery of our infrastructure projects.”
