Street works register

Monitoring of street works

As part of the monitoring process, we inspect 10% of the works carried out by utility companies. These inspections take place at all three stages every year. If we find anything wrong, we work with the company to resolve any issues. The company can incur a fine if they don't comply. In some cases, we can complete the works ourselves and charge the company for costs incurred.

We have limited powers to charge companies for not completing their works expediently. A company can apply for an extension of time due to unforeseen circumstances.

Quarterly meetings are held with all the utility companies, the Metropolitan Police and Transport for London to discuss major planned works and other related issues.
