Richard Pohribnyj
Highway Asset Manager, Walsall Metropolitan District Council
"I can tell this software has been designed with a team with first-hand drainage maintenance experience. It makes managing operational data simple. I am really impressed with the level of spatial accuracy with which the system maps out the gully locations.”

Richard is a fellow of the Institute of Highway Engineers with over 30 years experience in the construction industry. He manages Walsall Council’s planned and reactive highway maintenance service with an annual contract value in the region of £10M. Richard is also responsible for the development of asset management practices for Walsall’s highway infrastructure which includes carriageways, footways, street furniture, structures, traffic control equipment and such like.

Ed Bradford
Senior Engineer, Highways Services, Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council
“It is as easy to use whether in the field or in the office and is a great platform to manage service requests.”

Ed joined Solihull Council in 2009 from consultants WSP and since April 2014 has been responsible for managing the Drainage, Flood Risk Management and Tanker Services section within Highway Services with an overall budget per annum of £560,000.

Day to day, Ed manages 8 members of staff who make up the Tanker Services team and who are responsible for the cleansing of approximately 36,000 gullies and associated pipework across the highway network. The team is made up of 2 admin and supervisory staff and 6 operatives, who have access to 2 jet-vac combination units and a pick up vehicle. The team also operate a cesspool and septic tank service and are also responsible for cleansing numerous trash screens around the Borough.

A strong believer in continuous improvement, Ed quickly realised that the deployment of in-cab technology would allow the Tanker Services team to work more effectively and efficiently. Ed also realised that asset knowledge and understanding could be easily shared between back office staff and operatives working in the field and that ultimately the end customer would be provided with an enhanced service. The deployment of Gully Smart has also led to capacity release within the back office, with seven pieces of paperwork and associated inputting and processing being replaced by automatic reporting tools within the system. Where cleansing information was merely collected in the past and not looked at, the use of the automatic reporting tools within Gully Smart allows Ed to quickly and easily analyse performance of operatives at the click of a button, helping the service in its aim of getting from good to great, in an era where more for less has become standard practice.
