Date published:
10 March 2010
Closing date:
02 June 2010

Summary

The Safety at Street Works and Road Works Code of Practice sets the statutory minimum requirements to ensure that all road users and operatives at sites remain safe when works are taking place. The proposed changes would make the code statutory for local authorities as well as utilities, set new standards for equipment,  and ensure greater consistency with other legislation, such as Chapter 8 of the Traffic Signs Manual, 2005 Disability Discrimination Act, and 2007 Corporate Manslaughter Act.
