A consistent message coming from the roads community was the need for a forum to share knowledge and best practice to allow authorities to develop approaches with a proven track record of success in other areas and to navigate authorities in the direction of collaborative opportunities.
The Online Collaboration Space Project has created an online platform (using the Knowledge Hub) to allow roads officers to communicate in a secure virtual environment while also being able to access a range of tools and guidance materials. This project also included the development of a new public-facing website for SCOTS.
