Lincolnshire County Council – soil-related geohazards

Mar 20, 2014

Using Cranfield University’s geohazard datasets and Lincolnshire County Council’s road network and condition surveys, we assessed soil-related geohazards for Lincolnshire’s highways department. We concluded that areas prone to clay-related subsidence, which is intensified in drought conditions, have a detrimental impact on road surface quality. Lincolnshire Highways Alliance has since used the research to allocate £600k of road maintenance fund.

EPSRC feature the work in a ‘Big data’ case study to demonstrate the practical impacts of funded research.

Our research has not only supported Lincolnshire County Council’s latest road maintenance funding bid to the Department for Transport, but also helped them further understand the soil-related risks which they have and are likely to face in the future, helping the Council plan appropriate mitigation strategies.
