Product Release 22nd April 2020

Causeway updates

In the meantime, the following will be live from Thursday evening. Please be aware that there may be a short period of downtime with services while these improvements are made.

Record filming on the public highway

Highway authorities are always looking for ways to minimise disruption of filming on the public highway and coordinate these with wider network activities. We’ve added a new filming category in the Traffic Management module to make it easier to plan, manage and communicate filming activities using
