Tasmanian visit for NTRO survey vehicle

NTRO has just completed surveying the Clarence City Council network in greater Hobart with our Network Survey Vehicle (NSV), which is designed for surveying local government and/or state road networks.

Led by NTRO’s State Business Leader for Tasmania, Vibeke Matthews, NTRO had the pleasure of arranging a short ‘show and tell’ for Clarence City Council Mayor, Cr Brendan Blomeley, and some of the council workers.

“We are excited to be working with Vibeke, Adrian, and the team at NTRO on this project. It has been a number of years since our network was last surveyed with the NSV. We look forward to receiving the comprehensive output and insights it provides to develop our forward road renewal program,” said Glen Popowski, Clarence City Council Manager Asset Planning.

NTRO has a long-standing and strong relationship with Clarence City Council which we hope to only strengthen and expand as we move forward.

Our network survey vehicle measures important elements of road condition, such as roughness, rutting and texture. Fitted with laser profilers or crack detection systems, they also carry a large number of calibrated digital cameras. The imagery they collect can be used for visual rating of surface defects such as cracking, or for identifying and rating roadside assets.

If you are interested in getting similar insight data for your local council’s network in Tasmania, please reach out to our Tasmanian State Business Leader Vibeke Matthews via email or mobile 0477 408 115.

“I look forward to talking to you about how we can optimise your road maintenance efforts and investments by utilising the data we can provide you,” Vibeke said.
