Street works and road works

Most of the works undertaken in the borough are undertaken by utility companies, who install, repair or renew their assets.

Inspecting street and road works

We inspect Street and Road Works to make sure they are legal. Inspections take place over four different stages of the year. If we find things wrong with these sites we try and work together with the utility company, should they fail to comply we have the right to issue a fine. Utility companies can apply for extensions of time to their works due to unforeseen circumstances.

We are obliged to hold quarterly meetings with the utilities and Transport for London (TfL) to discuss programmed planned works across the borough. We also work closely with the Greater London Authority (GLA) to identify and secure possible collaborative working to reduce disruption across the borough.
