New Roads & Street Works

Introduction

The New Roads and Street Works Act require that anyone who executes works for, or on behalf of a utility company, is qualified for the activities being carried out.

Any street works site must have at least one qualified operative on site at all times during works, and the site must have a qualified supervisor appointed to the site who can oversee the works. The supervisor qualification does not replace or overrule the operative qualification and one person cannot cover both roles at the same time.
