AppyParking, a kerbside management and smart parking technology company, has developed a new Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) management solution in partnership with Cambridgeshire County Council, Coventry City Council and Milton Keynes Council. Called the AppyMapper, the kerbside mapping and management software tool has already uncovered significant opportunities to help Local Authority offices that manage TROs. Results from initial testing were encouraging.
“We have identified real savings in the time it takes to upload and edit data in our zone-based parking approach,” noted Sunil Budhdeo of Coventry City Council. “Work which used to take several weeks is now done in a few hours. This will allow us to be more flexible in the future and support our mobility projects.”
David Lines, highways engineer at Cambridgeshire County Council, said: “We’ve been involved in this project to help support the innovative ideas we’re already deploying that all rely on high-quality digital TRO data. The Smart Cambridge program has been looking at how digitized TRO data can support future mobility, such as autonomous vehicles and smart parking, so this is an important requirement for future parking management and we’re pleased to be helping make sure the service meets our needs.”
Karla Jakeman, connected transport innovation lead, Innovate UK added, “This idea enables a vision for smarter parking for UK local authorities, future proofing them for connected transport and Mobility as a Service. Digital TROs are a core need for other projects we are supporting, and we’re delighted to help bring this innovation to the market.”
