Wokingham Council Takes to the Streets with Yotta’s Mayrise Software

Jun 18, 2015 -- The UK’s Wokingham Borough Council is using advanced street works software from Yotta to drive forward efficiencies in street works monitoring and management. The Mayrise Street Works system, including mobile working functionality and mapping, is being used to allow Street Works Officers to access up to date information in order to monitor works in progress and investigate completed works.

The newly introduced mobile working practices also allow council staff to check compliance of works, report overstays and recommend fixed penalty notices. The introduction of mobile working, supported by Mayrise Street Works, is reducing the reliance on paper records and unnecessary trips to the office thereby maximising officers’ time in the field and productivity.

Graham Barnwell, Traffic Manager at Wokingham Borough Council, commented, “The introduction of mobile working in street works, supported by Yotta’s Mayrise software, is already delivering operational efficiencies. By enabling officers to access the information they need, when they need it, we are allowing staff to focus on the job in hand. By reducing the need for Inspectors to return to the office or interrupt colleagues to obtain relevant information we are already seeing an increase in productivity and improvement in the service we provide to the community.”

Wokingham Borough Council is currently using Honeywell Dolphin mobile computers running Mayrise Street Works Mobile software. The devices allow the Council’s Street Works Officers and NRSWA (New Roads and Street Works Act) Inspectors to remotely access the Street Works Register in order to research activities in progress and investigate works after they have been completed.

Using the Mayrise enabled mobile devices staff working in the field can also generate defect inspection reports, recommend fixed penalty notices and check compliance with permit conditions. Inspectors can report overstays to provide evidence of an offence which sends a warning to the promoter that the works are overrunning. Section 81 (Defective Apparatus) notices can be directly sent to the works promoter, mapped and with photographic evidence this ensures the utility has the information to locate and fix the apparatus in the quickest possible time.

Mayrise Street Works is a complete solution for managing street work notices for both street and highways authorities and statutory undertakers. Handling the Street Works Register, National Street Gazetteer, inspections management and defect reporting, the system eliminates paperwork, ensures best practice and provides up to date information on the status of all works. Mayrise Street Works also offers full compliance with the revised EToN 6 specification which aims to further reduce the impact of roadworks, through the better co-ordination and sharing of information between local authorities and utility firms.
