Roadworks: Improving Planning and Reducing Disruption

Successful roadworks rely on good preparation, clear communication and timely completion. The benefits of good roadworks are obvious, but poorly carried out works can cause disruption to local areas and public anger.

Attend this Westminster Briefing to consider what improvements can be made to partnership working and discuss how you can reduce the burden of roadworks on road users and the local area.

Key Issues to be Addressed:

  • Understanding the national landscape and Government action/priorities
  • Improving planning, coordination and communication
  • Effective partnership working between local authorities, utility firms and road workers
  • Managing ‘A’ road works successfully and ensuring timely completion
  • Using and removing temporary traffic lights: ensuring they are not in place after work has ended
  • Learning from success: case studies of effective strategies
  • Strengthening the channels of communications between LAs, utility firms and road workers

About the day:
