Shane O'Neill

Chairman, Elgin

Shane is Chairman of Elgin, the home of roadworks.org - the national roadworks database.

Roadworks data is collected in near real-time from over 95% of the Local Highways Authorities in England & Wales. Information is disseminated on over 2.5 million roadworks and over 16 million enquiries were answered via roadworks.org in the last 12 months. roadworks.org is the number 1 search result for ‘roadworks’ on Google.

2017 sees the launch of a number of professional Streetworks data services from Elgin. Most notably the new Real-Time Traffic service, which correlates roadworks with actual traffic impacts. Later in 2017 will be the launch of roadworks.org Pro – a suite of professional operational tools designed to work alongside existing Streetworks provider systems and client enterprises architectures. 

Data is the fuel of the new information super highway and Elgin is helping the Streetworks industry achieve its ambitions of reducing road space occupancy and minimising traffic congestion while communicating more effectively, in real-time, to the public.


The best industry exhibition I have ever been to. Thought provoking, interesting, good networking, with a positive feel to the whole event… it was excellent!
