Innovation, celebration and relocation: Clearview Intelligence reflects on 2018

With Christmas and New Year now upon us, we have entered a natural period of reflection; a chance to look back on what has been achieved in 2018 and how this will influence our goals in 2019.

Nick Lanigan, Managing Director for Clearview Intelligence said: “We have achieved some major milestones this year, not just in terms of providing high quality service to our customers in challenging times but also developing solutions moving office and obtaining national recognitions. None of this would have been possible without the hard work of everyone at Clearview, or the fantastic working relationships we have with customers, all of whom I would like to thank and wish a very merry Christmas and happy new year.”

So, as we prepare to close the book on one chapter and reopen on another, here are some of our ‘best bits’ from 2018.


Tasked with delivering long term improvements along the A38 dual carriageway in Derbyshire, Clearview worked in partnership with WJ and Highways England to enhance delineation the driving experience for the 23,000 motorists using the route daily. Although the topography and the short entry slip lanes presented challenges, Clearview’s SolarLite Active Road Studs helped to contribute to an award-winning solution.

Switch Island
Clearview delivered a first for Highways England at Switch Island in Merseyside. The junction provides the point where the M57, M58 and three A roads all meet and had been subject to an average of one accident every fortnight. By installing hardwired studs, synced to the traffic signals, the LED studs illuminate with a green light sequence to provide clear guidance and reduce lane transgression.

Bellfield Interchange
The A77 Bellfield Interchange, south of Glasgow, provides the meeting point for the A77, A71 and A76 so is prone to congestion – particularly at rush hour – causing queues on the slip roads. Static queue warning signs were having little effect on driver behaviour, so Clearview used vehicle detection systems to inform VAS signs. These signs were installed on the slip road and the approach to the junction to warn drivers at the appropriate point when they were approaching a queue

The A161, connecting Yorkshire to Lincolnshire, was identified as one of the country’s most dangerous roads. Using Safer Roads Funding, North Lincolnshire Council installed 600 SolarLite Active Road Studs along a stretch of road that had been subject to two fatal, nine serious and 36 injury collisions over a two-year period. The studs provide enhanced delineation, giving drivers ten times more visibility of the road ahead compared to retro reflective road studs.

Journey time
A revolutionary new Journey Time Monitoring application was launched by Clearview, offering clients the opportunity to set up routes and receive data within minutes. Reliant upon crowdsource data instead of traditional ANPR, or Bluetooth or data, the system does not require roadside technology and can be used for permanent or temporary routes. With an automated alert system, operators are notified of slowing or queuing traffic, eliminating the need to monitor CCTV.

National Transport Awards
The National Transport Awards signified the first of a hattrick of victories for Clearview during award season. At the October ceremony, Transport for Greater Manchester & Manchester City Council, Wilmslow Road and Oxford Road Cycleway were named the winner of the Excellence in Cycling and Walking category. Clearview had worked in partnership on the Oxford Road Cycleway aspect of the scheme, installing its SolarLite Active Road Studs to highlight the rerouted cycle path.

Highways Awards
November’s Highways Awards brought about further success for Clearview Intelligence when its work with WJ Group and Highways England on the A38 (above) was named the winner of the Road Marking Project of the Year. There was further cause for celebration when Clearview’s SolarActive Road Studs were featured as part of a segment on BBC’s The One Show, broadcasting to an audience of approximately five million.

Prince Michael International Road Safety Awards
The award season came to a successful conclusion when Scotland Transerv’s route safety improvements on the A75 won the Innovative Road Safety Solutions category at the Prince Michael International Road Safety Awards. Using Clearview’s vehicle count and classify device, a VAS system was introduced at nine locations on the A75 to warn drivers – particularly HGVs - travelling above the safe speed for the road. Since its installation in 2015, accidents involving HGVs have fallen by 31 percent; HGV speed has dropped by five percent and all vehicle speed has reduced by 12.5 percent.

With ambition to continue growing the business in 2019, Clearview relocated its headquarters from Bicester joining up with the research and development team at its Milton Keynes office. With the finance, operations and marketing departments united with the R&D team under one roof, colleagues are now working more closely than ever inside a state-of-the-art demonstration area.
