Mayrise Street Works System Updates to Meet Electronic Transfer of Notices
Mayrise Systems has released an upgrade to its market leading street works software to comply with new legislation from the Department for Transport (DfT). The updated technical specification for the Electronic Transfer of Notices aims to reduce the impact of roadworks, through the co-ordination and sharing of information between local authorities and utility firms. A founding member in the provision of information management software to Street Works professionals, Mayrise Systems has upgraded its managed service customers to the new specification in time for the DfT 1st October implementation date.
“We are delighted to have not only completed the comprehensive upgrade to our systems in accordance with the new specification but we have also transferred our existing Mayrise Online customers to the new system ahead of the DfT implementation date,” commented Nick Smee, CEO of Yotta.
EToN 6 includes a number of enhancements to the previous specification. These include a change to how Inspections are delivered which not only saves money but also allow for the referencing of additional information such as defect photographs. The revised specification also addresses problems with reporting of defective apparatus to utility companies, applications for temporary traffic signals and increased functionality with permit applications. It is estimated by the DfT that usage of the new EToN system could save as much as two thousand work hours a week for councils and utility firms and both sectors are expected to have fully implemented the new specification by April 2014.
“We are delighted to be one of the first street authorities in the country to be fully EToN 6 compliant.” commented Jeff Elliott, Highway and Traffic Manager at Brighton and Hove City Council. “The Mayrise team have been extremely helpful, keeping us informed at every stage of the process and we look forward to working with them to realise the benefits of EToN 6.”
In addition, Phillip Parry, Senior Street Works Officer for Powys and Ceredigion said, ‘We are delighted to be at the forefront of the EToN 6 rollout with this latest upgrade to our managed services, demonstrating why Mayrise are the leading Street Works software supplier in Wales. ‘
