1 1 Administration of Street & Highway Works Notices TRAINING HAND OUT For those involved in the administration of street works notices Based on the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 Code of Practice for the Co-ordination of Street Works and Works for Road Purposes and Related Matters Technical Specification for the Electronic Transfer of Notifications (EToN)

2 2 Background & Basics Hand out for

3 3 Code of Practice for the Co-ordination of Street Works and Works for Road Purposes and Related Matters 7 WORKS CLASSIFICATION 7.3 Registerable Works Page Included and Excluded Works Works promoters must register, or notice, all works that: (a) Involve the breaking up or resurfacing any street, (see below for pole testing and coring involving excavation). (b) Involve opening the carriageway or cycleway of traffic- sensitive streets at traffic sensitive times. (c) Require any form of temporary traffic control as defined in the Code of Practice for Safety at Street Works and Road Works. (d) Reduce the lanes available on a carriageway of three or more lanes. (e) Require a temporary traffic regulation order or notice, or the suspension of pedestrian facilities. (f) Require a reduction in the width of the existing carriageway of a traffic-sensitive street at a traffic- sensitive time Works promoters do not need to register the following works in advance however, where reinstatement is carried out it must be registered within 10 days of completion. traffic census surveys - because disclosure prior to a census can encourage a change in normal traffic flows pole testing involving excavation - does not require registration in advance, unless one or more of rules (b) - (f) above, apply. core holes - not exceeding 150 mm in diameter do not require registration in advance, unless one or more of rules (b) - (f) above, apply. road markings - that are not part of a larger set of works and do not reduce the width of the carriageway, as they do not involve breaking up of the highway If a street authority gives prior written agreement to a works promoter, small excavations may not need to be registered in advance, unless one or more of rules (b) - (f) above, apply. For this purpose small excavations are defined as those associated with existing apparatus and that do not exceed 150 mm distance from the building line and are no larger than150 mm. The statutory requirements for signing, lighting and guarding of all of the above activities, as well as the requirements for the legal parking of any associated vehicles, must be complied with at all times.

4 4 Where do we send a notice? Notices for works on publically maintainable streets go to the Street Authority. (The Highways Agency is the Street Authority for most motorways and trunk roads) Notices for works on private streets go to the ‘street manager’ or all the frontagers. A copy should also be sent to the Street Authority for recording on their Register. A promoter should take all reasonable steps to determine the identity of a ‘Street Manager’ for a private street. Some streets may have an ‘interested organisation’ registered on the gazetteer. Notices should also be sent to any interested organisations. (eg Network Rail for works on streets that have a level crossing).

5 5 What type of notice to send Hand out for

6 6 How do you decide what Notice to send? Major: Standard: Minor: Immediate - Urgent Immediate – Emergency 11 + days 4 to 10 days (Maximum) 3 days (Maximum) Duration determined by nature of works - extensions can be requested Estimated Duration

7 7 NONO Is immediate work required to prevent or end a dangerous situation (includes dangerous defective works or reinstatements) Immediate Emergency Works Is work to prevent or end an unplanned interruption to a supply or to avoid substantial loss with respect to an existing supply, or to reconnect a supply to comply with a statutory duty (HA works: signs, bollards etc) Immediate Urgent Works Are the works in the annual programme OR need a TTRO OR have a planned duration of 11 days or more, other than immediate works NONO Are the works, other than immediate OR major works with a planned duration of 3 days or less NONO Standard Works NONO WORKS CATEGORY SELECTION YES Major Works Minor Works YES

8 8 Notice periods and sequence Hand out for

9 9 Advance Warning – minimum periods Advance s 54. Proposed Start s 55 (Immediate Urgent s55. Immediate Emergency s 57). Works Start or Revised Duration s 74.

10 10 What information is required on the initial notice? Hand out for

11 11 Error corrections/Amendments Works description – can only be amended with agreement USRN/Provisional street details – can only be amended with agreement Applicable designation – can only be amended with agreement Grid reference/s – can only be amended with agreement Location description – can only be amended with agreement Restricted notice flag – can be updated without agreement Attachments – can be added without agreement Project reference & Description - can be amended without agreement Promoter & Contractor details – can be amended without agreement The following information can be corrected using a Works Data Alteration notice, some of which need an agreement from the authority Agreements must be obtained from the relevant authority

12 12 Retracting S74 notices sent in error If an Actual Start, or Works Stop notice has been issued on a notice in error, it may be possible to retract the notice using a Works Status Correction notice An agreement must be reached with the relevant authority before sending this correction notice

19 19 Offences Table 11.1: Summary of duties and obligations OffenceBrief descriptionDuties and obligations An offence under s.54(5) Failure to comply with duties under s.54 In certain cases prescribed in regulations prescribed periods of advance notice must be given to a street authority by an undertaker proposing to execute street works. Each notice must state the proposed start date on which it is proposed to begin the works and contain the information prescribed in regulations. After giving advance notice under section 54, an undertaker must comply with the requirements prescribed in regulations, or imposed by the street authority. These concern the provision of information and procedural steps to co-ordinate the works with other proposed works of any description. If an undertaker who has given advance notice under section 54 has not, before the starting date specified in the notice, given to the street authority a notice under section 55 in respect of the works, he must within such period as may be prescribed in regulations (Regulation 8(2)) give to that authority a notice containing prescribed information. An offence under s.55(5) Beginning to execute works in contravention of s.55 In relation to certain types of street works an undertaker must give prescribed periods of advance notice stating the proposed start date and containing information prescribed in regulations. This notice must be given to the street authority, to any other relevant authority, and to any other person having apparatus in the street, which is likely to be affected by the works. The undertaker must not begin the works without notice, or before the end of the notice period, without the consent of those to whom notice is required to be given. An offence under s.55(9) Failure to give notice in accordance with s.55(8) If the notice of starting date ceases to have effect, the undertaker must give a further notice containing such information as may be prescribed in regulations and within the prescribed period. This notice must be given to the same people as the notice of starting date (see above). An offence under s.57(4) Failure to give notice in accordance with s.57 Where emergency works are of a kind which either do, or would, but for certain provisions in Schedule 3A NRSWA, require a notice of starting date under section 55, an undertaker executing such works must give notice stating his intention or, as the case may be, the fact that he has begun to execute the works. The notice must also contain such other information as may be prescribed in regulations. The notice must be given as soon as reasonably practicable, and in any event within two hours (or such other period as may be prescribed), to the persons to whom a notice of starting date would be required to be given under section 55 (see above).

20 20 OffenceBrief descriptionDuties and obligations An offence under s.70(6) consisting of a failure to comply with subsection (3) or (4A) Failure to comply with requirements to give notice of completion of reinstatement Section 70(1) imposes a general duty on the undertaker to reinstate the street. The undertaker must, within ten working days from the date on which the reinstatement is completed, give notice to the street authority of that completion. The notice must state whether the reinstatement is permanent or interim, and give such other information about the reinstatement as may be prescribed in regulations. In the case of an interim reinstatement, the undertaker must within ten working days from the date on which the permanent reinstatement is completed, give notice to the street authority of that completion. The notice must contain such other information about the reinstatement as may be prescribed. An offence created by regulations made under s.74(7B) Failure to give a notice required by regulations under s.74 (charge for occupation of the highway where works unreasonably delayed) The Street Works (Charges for Unreasonably Prolonged Occupation of the Highway) (England) Regulations 2001 create a criminal offence in respect of any failure to give a notice required by the regulations. An undertaker executing street works in a highway, to which these regulations apply must, not later than the end of the day following the day on which the works begin, give the highway authority an “actual start of works notice”. This should confirm the actual start date and specify, by reference to the nationally consistent street gazetteer, the street or streets, in which the works are to be carried out. Once an undertaker has completed interim reinstatement, a written “works clear notice” must be given to the highway authority not later than the end of the day following the day on which the highway was returned fully to public use. An undertaker who has completed permanent reinstatement must give the highway authority a written “works closed notice” not later than the end of the day, following the day on which, the highway was returned fully to public use. If the duration of the works will exceed the prescribed period, a notice shall be given to the highway authority containing an estimate of the likely duration. The estimated duration of works should: for works for initial placing of the apparatus, be given with the application for a licence for other works (not emergency) be given with the section 55 notice for emergency works be given as soon as practicable after the works begin. This estimate is assumed to be agreed by the authority, unless it gives a written notice to the undertaker written notice of its own estimate of a reasonable period for the duration within five days (major or standard works) or two days (minor or immediate works) of receiving the undertaker’s estimate. If the duration of the works is exceeds the prescribed period, or is likely to exceed either the period stated in a previous estimate of duration or the period agreed or determined under section 74(2) to be a reasonable period, the undertaker shall give a notice in writing containing an estimate or a revised estimate of duration. This estimate is assumed to be agreed by the authority, unless it gives a written notice to the undertaker of its own estimate of a reasonable period for the duration within two days of receiving the undertaker’s estimate.

21 21 OffenceBrief descriptionDuties and obligations An offence created by regulations made under s.74A (11) Failure to give a notice required by regulations under s.74 A (Charge determined by reference to duration of works) The Street Works (Charges for Occupation of the Highway) (England) Regulations 2001 create a criminal offence in respect of any failure to give a notice required by the regulations. An undertaker executing street works in a highway, to which these regulations apply, must, not later than the end of the day following the day on which the works begin, give the approved highway authority an “actual start of works notice”. This should confirm the start date and specify by reference to the nationally consistent street gazetteer, the street or streets in which the works are to be carried out. Once an undertaker has completed interim reinstatement, a ‘works clear notice’ must be sent to the approved highway authority, not later than the end of the day following the day on which the highway was returned fully to public use. An undertaker who has completed permanent reinstatement must give the approved highway authority a written ’works closed notice’, not later than the end of the day following the day on which the highway was returned fully to public use.
