Surveys

Saber’s core activity is the collection and analysis of highway condition and inventory information, and we’re told we are very good at it!

In 2018 Saber surveyed 44,000 kilometres of highway with Saber surveyors walking the equivalent of 101 times around the M25. Data collected included 65,000 Footway trips and 34,000 Potholes with the mapping of 5.6 million data points and the recording of over 8 million skidding measurements.

Saber will undertake all types of infrastructure and asset management surveys including the UKPMS surveys CVI, DVI, FNS, and more bespoke surveys such as AEI and FMS.  We also carry out Skid Resistance surveys using an accredited SCRIM vehicle.  Saber can also tailor a bespoke survey service to suit your exact requirements.

All survey data is supplied ready to use in multiple formats compatible with all UKPMS and asset management systems, or we can use our own systems to analyse your data.

“We know that data is collected to the highest standards and delivered ready to use in our existing asset management tools.”
Antony Durke, Team Leader, Highways & Asset Management, Harrow Council
