Why are roads closed during roadworks when they never used to be?

Health and safety legislation means that traffic control measures and safe working zones must be provided to protect the workforce and travelling public. Where roads are too narrow to accommodate this there is no option but to have a temporary closure. In these cases signed diversion routes are provided and the emergency services, Parish Councils and bus operators are made aware of the closure and diversion route.

I need to dig a hole in the road, verge or footpath, what do I do?

If you need to have a hole dug in the road, verge or footpath to, for example, install a private water supply you need to use a company who will make an application on your behalf. A licence is required to carry out this work which must be undertaken by a company with adequate insurance using trained and qualified staff and a list of these can be obtained by contacting the highways helpline on (0845) 6001666.
