High speed data collection programme

Each year, between October and March, we survey the condition of our highways. We do this using a specialist vehicle called SCRIM+ (Sideway-force Coefficient Routine Investigation Machine). SCRIM+ collects data on a range of condition aspects, which allows us to respond to any arising maintenance issues and helps ensure road users continue to travel safely.
