Helping you reduce the impact of winter weather on your road network

Route Based Forecasting (RBF) is the latest road weather forecasting development designed to help you reduce expenditure and improve operational efficiency.

Why choose Route Based Forecasting?

Route Based Forecasting uses the latest scientific modelling to provide you with forecasts along the routes in your network enabling you to:

  • Reduce costs by treating surfaces selectively along a route
  • Identify problem areas within your network
  • Maximise operational efficiency

We provided forecasts for over 350 routes in the UK throughout the winter period of 2011 to 2012, helping customers improve efficiency, reduce costs to streamline winter maintenance activities and reduce the impact of cold weather on their road networks.
