What is Traffic Management?

Traffic management

We have to make sure that any work can be carried out safely with as little disruption to the public as possible. Often this requires us to set up traffic management provisions such as traffic lights, lane and road closures.

To do this we need to apply to the local authority for permission to carry out the works. We are usually required to pay a fee. These fees can vary depending on the authority so we can't provide a standard list.

In some circumstances we may need to provide up to 3 months advance notice to the local authority. This may result in the connection being delayed until this has been done. We will let you know as early as possible during our site visit so that you are aware of these timescales and we’ll work with you to minimise any disruption this may cause.
