Costain selects NaviSite hybrid cloud hosting to deliver intelligent transport solutions for Highways England

NaviSite Europe Limited, a Time Warner Cable company, announced today that engineering solutions provider Costain has selected NaviSite hybrid cloud hosting services to support the roll out of its complex Electronic Service Delivery for Abnormal Loads (ESDAL) application for Highways England. NaviSite was selected after a successful competitive tender process, underpinned by its proven reputation and success in supporting large client implementations.

Highways England turned to Costain to deliver an innovative solution that would comply with complex UK legislation requiring highways authorities, structure owners and the police to be notified of vehicles and their loads exceeding standard dimensions. Costain developed the ESDAL application to automate this process and looked to NaviSite to provide a secure and scalable hosting solution.

The successful mobilisation of the ESDAL service, hosted on NaviSite’s hybrid cloud model has enhanced the reputation and confidence in Costain to deliver complex integrated technology solutions. The success of the new service has been underpinned by a collaborative approach with NaviSite to create the required infrastructure to meet the key performance requirements of the contract. This approach linked to Costain’s broader capabilities has proven our ability to deliver a complex IT solution to meet national needs and provided Costain with the opportunity to create significant new business. ESDAL is now available as a free service to local councils, government departments and private companies through Highways England’s ESDAL website.

Costain’s Graham Stacey, Highways Technology Director said: “The national road network is undergoing significant upgrades, and our highways clients look to us to deliver innovative technologies to help them improve the road network across the UK. NaviSite was tasked with helping us roll out ESDAL, in an extremely demanding timeline. They were able to expedite the implementation due to the quality of their staff and their technical expertise. The new cloud based platform will enable us to further develop the ESDAL solution and take advantage of new and emerging technologies.  As we expand our business we will continue to look to NaviSite to support the development of our services.”

Sean McAvan, Managing Director, NaviSite, said, “We enjoy working with companies like Costain because our synergies align for delivering innovative solutions to complex challenges. By working together, we were able to develop new business opportunities with Costain and we look forward to working with them to continue delivering new solutions to their customers.”

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?

Single Issues

If you prefer to purchase individual issues (one at a time), you will still have the ability to do so, both online (via the website), or by calling our offices +44 (0) 1572 3450872. Orders for single issues received before the pre-publication deadline will be mailed along with the subscribers.

Current and Back Issues

Our website also caters for those looking to purchase back issues. To browse Back Issue availability, follow this link: https://www.heavytorque.co.uk/shop/
