The Challenge

Welsh government introduced a default 20mph speed limit on restricted roads in Wales.

A council we worked with wanted to identify the roads where this speed change would arguably be unnecessary.

The Solution

The council used FME to analyse 500 km of road inside its’ administrative boundary.

Using housing density, buffer polygons around schools and hospitals, and vehicle collision data they identified roads that could potentially remain at 30mph or where the new 20 mph speed limit justified.

The Benefits

30 roads were identified that could potentially remain at 30mph.

This saved the council days of manual analysis and gave them data-back insight for discussion.

Want to know how to build this workspace?

We get it – time is tight, and while you know there’s a whole lot more you could do with FME, having the space to explore that capability is tough.

That’s why we’re hosting a series of hands-on in-person events across the UK designed to quickly ramp up what you can do, connect you with other local FME experts, and give you this workspace ready-to-use.
