What's new in one.network version e2.15.0?
Are you ready to hear all about the exciting updates in our latest release? Great, let’s go.
First – Electric Vehicle Charge Point Data.
With the fast and vast expansion of electric vehicle charging infrastructure across the UK, including the Government’s £1.6 billion EV Infrastructure strategy funding, we know it’s becoming increasingly important for authorities, works promoters and the public alike to be aware of charge point locations.
That’s why we’ve added an Electrical Vehicle Charge Point data layer to our platform. This new data layer will allow any user of the one.network map to identify the location of EV charge points. Customers of our Works Planning module will also have access to additional information including the Charge Point Operator and the power level and adaptor types available.
If you notice a charge point is missing from the map, you can submit this here and it will then be integrated into the one.network platform.
Next up, Footway Information!
We’ve added footway information to Street Manager permit call outs on one.network for all our Traffic Management customers. This means users will no longer have to switch between one.network and Street Manager to view impact on pedestrian routes when coordinating works, making the planning process easier and ensuring appropriate signage and footway diversions are planned when and where they are necessary.
We’ve also further simplified the street works planning process by adding support to import Section 58 restrictions from Street Manager to one.network to make works coordination even easier.
A royally fun addition
Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee is fast approaching and whilst we’re grateful for the extra bank holiday, we know that thousands of TTRO applications are being processed to close roads for street parties.
So, for Traffic Management customers, we’ve added the ‘Queen’s Jubilee’ as a category under Step 1, making it easier to clearly communicate when and where closures and diversions are a result of Jubilee-related activities.
There is also a new ‘Queen’s Jubilee’ layer on the one.network map, so both operational users and the public can see where events and parties are taking place and where the roads will be impacted. This will make it easier for users to plan their journeys and for authorities and utilities to coordinate works around this time and plan effective diversions.
Would you like to improve awareness of Queen's Jubilee road closures across your authority?
You can make it easier for the public to find out where their nearest Jubilee Street Party is being held with a customised embed of the one.network map on your website, displaying only the upcoming Jubilee events.
Subscribers to the Traffic Management module can discuss this with your Customer Success Manager.
If you don’t subscribe to Traffic Management but would like to use the one.network map to improve communication about Jubilee related road closures, get in touch here.
And finally, some Customer-requested improvements
We always want to be delivering value and improving our platform for our customers and so, upon customer request we’ve made some developments to the Bridges and Restrictions layer on the one.network map.
We’re aware that bridges and restrictions can a) impact the ability to get both people and equipment to and from the site, and b) create requirements for alternative, appropriate diversion routes.
Therefore, we’ve now updated the Bridges and Restrictions layer to include:
- Lines and polygons to display the total area or span of restrictions.
- Individualised markers for width, weight height and length restrictions on the map, so users will no longer have to click to open call outs to identify which type of restriction is in place.
We hope these improvements make distinguishing between different types of restrictions easier and planning and coordinating works and diversions simpler.
