Traffic Sensitive Streets

Closed 23 Mar 2018

Opened 20 Feb 2018


Under Section 64 of the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 (NRWSA) a Highway Authority may designate certain streets (or parts of streets) as Traffic Sensitive.

This allows heavily trafficked roads to be identified as requiring Works Promoters (such as utility companies) to give greater advanced warning of proposed works or activities. Although the Highway Authority cannot prevent works happening on these streets, it has greater control over times and duration of works.
