Dear West Sussex County Council,

I wanted to know how you deal with the Highways SCRIM data that you receive.

How you gather the data?
How you record your data (ie on maps?)?
What happens with the data? (Do engineers look at all the sites?)
Do you undertake work on sites that fall below intervention level on a yearly basis or are they prioritise for future years?

Yours faithfully,

Emily

Our Ref. 87232

 

Dear Emily

 

Freedom of Information Act 2000

 

I refer to your request for information in connection with Highways SCRIM
data.  Your request was received by me on 14 July 2014 and is being
processed under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

I am now in a position to respond to you and have answered your original
questions as set out in your original email.

 

How you gather the data?

 

We currently procure a 3 year contract to survey and collect Scrim data on
all the A+B roads in West Sussex on a 1/3^rd of the network each year, so
over 3 years we would have the whole county (for A and B roads only). This
is carried out by using a suitably accredited Scrim Machine undertaken by
a nominated Scrim contractor on 3 separate survey runs throughout the
months of May to August each year, to obtain a mean average reading for
reporting on, all in accordance of HD28/04.

 

How you record your data (ie on maps?)?

 

We record all our data electronically into an accredited UK Pavement
Management System (UKPMS), process the results and create GIS layers for
visual interpretation and evaluation for our Engineers to use for
comparison.

 

What happens with the data? (Do engineers look at all the sites?) Do you
undertake work on sites that fall below intervention level on a yearly
basis or are they prioritise for future years?

 

All end of year survey results are then broken down into inspection sites,
which are then visually inspected out on site and prioritised in
accordance with HD28/04, with recommendations for treatment / monitoring
or no action. This is then used to create our final works programme for
the following year.

 

If you are unhappy with the way your request has been handled, you may
wish to ask for a review of our decision under our complaints procedure
via our website.

  

If you are not content with the outcome of your complaint, you may apply
directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision.  Generally the
ICO cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted our complaints
procedure.  The ICO can be contacted at the Information Commissioner's
Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

  

Please remember to quote our reference number above in any further
correspondence.

  

Yours sincerely
