RSTA WELCOMES NEW MEMBER GAIST

Gaist, the international roadscape and highways technology company, has joined the Road Surface Treatments Association (RSTA).

Gaist has developed a detailed and auditable highways surveying and mapping system that provides an accurate detailed map layout of the whole roadscape environment – including full and part detailed network condition maps. They provide carriageway and footway condition maps, bridges, lighting columns, utilities, drainage, other ironworks, road markings, as well as other infrastructure assets. The company’s ongoing research means that its surveying and mapping systems are some of the most advanced of their kind in the United Kingdom and overseas.

Of becoming a member of the RSTA, Steve Cobb, Gaist Head of Business Development, said: “We already have a good working relationship with the RSTA through our work with LCRIG and partner local authorities and welcome the opportunity of becoming a member in order to share knowledge that can further develop the potential of road mapping for effective road maintenance and management.”

Welcoming their membership Paul Boss, RSTA Chief Executive, said: “Gaist is a good-fit to the RSTA membership. The company’s focus on how research and innovation can result in optimum road network solutions echoes the ethos of ourselves and of our membership. We look forward to their input to the RSTA as it seeks to raise awareness of how best to maintain the road network.”
