Mission Room technology used to aid a £1.5 billion road improvement scheme on the A14
A Major road project with over 20 miles of distributed sites
The A14 upgrade is one of the largest highways projects in the UK with a value of more than £1.5 billion. It will involve thousands of workers from multiple organisations visiting locations that change on a regular basis. Ensuring the safety of these workers and efficient delivery of the project requires clear and up-to-date understanding of the sites as they evolve.
Mission Room to improve the safety and efficiency of the A14 project
With the project in the early stages, Mission Room has installed a Hybrid and Desktop system at the project offices in Bedford and have also provided the project team with capture technology to enable them to produce their own content. The collection and processing of the background route footage was provided as a starting point for their project. A project induction has already been developed and further content will also be developed. It is anticipated that uses for Mission Room will evolve with the project as focus moves from design to construction.
The project is planned to run between 2016 and 2020 and involves a budget of £1.5 billion, making this one of Highways England’s major projects for the period. It will improve the A14 trunk road between Cambridge and Huntingdon, a total of 20 miles, together with improvements on the A1. The project will involve a number of the major contractors, including Carillion, Skanska, Costain and Balfour Beatty.
