Area 8 is one of the central Highways Agency areas in England, comprising trunk roads and motorways within Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Milton Keynes. Area 8 covers approximately 520 miles (830km) and is currently being managed and maintained by Carillion WSP.
Due to network boundary changes and the completion of several schemes, Carillion WSP commissioned IBI Group to perform an imagery survey for the whole network. This would allow the engineers and planners to have a full and current view of their road network available at the touch of a button. Additional software licenses were also supplied to enable more users to interact with the imagery and mapping.
