Street works carried out by poorly performing utility companies will be inspected more frequently, the DfT has announced. Under the new rules some utility firms will face more inspections from highways authorities after re-instating streets after completing works. The utility company will have to pay fees for these inspections.
Under the changes utility firms will be required to submit up to date information on traffic management and lane closures using the Street Manager digital service. Also, highway authorities will have to submit start and stop notices for their works, so that up-to-date information is available via Street Manager.
The changes followed a consultation earlier this year which received responses from highway authorities, utility companies, representative groups and technology companies.
