Reinstating a road after street works: new edition of the code of practice
Seeks views on a new edition of the 'Specification for the reinstatement of openings in highways', a statutory code of practice for street works.
This consultation closes at: 11:45pm on 6 May 2019
The Department for Transport is seeking views on a new edition of the ‘Specification for the reinstatement of openings in highways’ (SROH). This statutory code of practice sets out the standards that utility companies must adhere to when reinstating roads on completion of street works.
The SROH was last updated in April 2010. Since then, issues have arisen over interpretation of its requirements and many new innovations in reinstatement techniques and materials have been introduced. The new edition aims to address these issues and bring the document up to date. It also permits the use of new materials that make it easier to comply with the code’s requirements and help ensure reinstatements are right first time.
