Award Winning Response was ‘Immediate & Innovative’

8 December 2020

Release from Agilysis.

The work of pioneering service provider Agilysis has been recognised by the Prince Michael International Road Safety Award for their efforts to support the UK road safety sector during the coronavirus pandemic.

With road safety practitioners facing many new challenges during 2020, operating from unfamiliar environments and trying to understand how to continue road safety initiatives, Agilysis set out to support the sector and facilitate continuation of road safety work through a range of measures. Rapid development of a pioneering Covid-19 response planning tool (activestreets.uk) and over 40hrs of free webinar training, were delivered in the early weeks of lockdown. Backed up by research into the impact of Covid-19 on road safety and the digitisation of a range of road safety resources, the judges felt that this was a timely and effective contribution.

Speaking about the package of measures put in place by Agilysis, HRH Prince Michael of Kent commented: “I was most impressed to learn of the immediate and innovative response that Agilysis was able to make to provide such a comprehensive and effective support for the professional road safety community here in Britain during the current COVID-19 pandemic.”

Starting one week into the lockdown period, Agilysis created and hosted a series of webinars to engage with road safety practitioners. The webinars provided an opportunity to use specialists from across the sector to share knowledge, facilitate discussions and learn from practitioners about the support they require.

In a time of great uncertainty, it was unclear how road safety work could continue, and many practitioners felt isolated. The webinars provided support and inspiration, allowing a global community of practitioners from 35 countries to engage with experts, providing professional development opportunities. These interactions led to work on the wider suite of resources, in the form of two specific research projects, the development of the Active Streets Assessment Tool and the digitisation of a range of education interventions. Despite the incredibly short development window, the Active Streets Assessment Tool is the most comprehensive data platform of its kind, allowing immediate triaging of the network to identify active travel sites compliant with LCWIP and the new LTN1/20 design guide.

Speaking about the award, Agilysis Chairman, Dan Campsall said:

“In a year that has been difficult for every one of us, I have been so impressed by the tireless optimism and professionalism of the team. They have continued to push boundaries, exploit new technologies, develop innovative solutions and deliver a wide range of support for the sector. We are immensely grateful for this reward as recognition for that effort.”
