Worcestershire County Council

When extreme weather conditions occur in Worcestershire, the council’s highways maintenance team is prepared to help prevent road accidents and save lives. Using a new emergency GIS service, developed using Esri’s ArcGIS technology, it can react more quickly to emerging crises.

Read the case study for information on how:

  • ArcGIS improves public safety by helping the council to quickly mobilise to the locations of greatest need.
  • The web-based GIS is expected to deliver considerable cost savings from improved logistical and operational efficiencies. 
  • In emergency situations, the solution will improve collaboration between multiple agencies and facilitate coordinated responses.


"By enabling us to put out emergency signage or close a road more promptly, our ArcGIS app helps us to save lives."

Elwyn Williams, Highway Maintenance Officer, Worcestershire County Council
