Uber and Deliveroo support DfT pothole mapping project

07 September 2020
 

An audit into the mapping of potholes in England has been launched by Transport Secretary Grant Shapps, aided by data from on-road businesses such as Uber and Deliveroo. The DfT will work with Gaist, a highway data and mapping company, businesses such as Deliveroo, Uber, Tesco and Ocado, alongside local highway authorities to identify ‘pothole hotspots'. Combining collated data on current potholes held by nationwide businesses, and an up-to-date bank of roads imagery from Gaist, the DfT aims to paint a comprehensive picture of where funding is most needed. The pothole audit is intended to help better target improvements so that roads are in top condition as people return to work and school. The Government committed £2.5bn in funding for pothole repairs in the Budget earlier this year.
