Road closures and street works

Restrictions on roadworks (Section 58 notices)

After we carry out substantial works on roads and public footpaths for which we are the responsible highway authority, we can restrict further works for up to 3 years.

We set these restrictions by serving 'Section 58 notices', as permitted by the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 (NRSWA): Section 58.

'Substantial works' means works for road purposes that comprise a reconstruction, widening, alteration in the level, resurfacing or specialist non-skid surface dressing of part of the highway.

Restrictions can stay in place from 6 months to 3 years after the completion of works, depending on the type of work completed and the reinstatement category of the road, as set out at GOV.UK: How to reinstate a road after doing street works.

Works can only be carried out during a restriction if the works fall within a category of exempt works – listed at the end of this page – or with our consent.
