Pedal Power: Highways surveyors on your bikes!

Kaarbontech highways surveyors are taking to the saddle on specially equipped surveying bikes.

The asset management and surveying company has invested in lightweight folding bikes that fit easily into a car boot.

Mark Entwistle, Managing Director says: “We have invested in bikes to help speed up the process of surveying while being environmentally friendly and reducing fatigue on our surveyors. The bike has been kitted with specially fabricated attachments that allow surveying tools to be carried safely.”

Surveyors use tablets to record data using the company’s asset management software on tablet devices. Data can be exported straight to the client for use in their GIS system or to build maintenance records.

This spring and summer look out for a surveyor on a bike!
