Street works and road closures

Most of the works undertaken in the borough are undertaken by  utility companies, who install, repair or renew their assets.

Examples of these include:

  • Cadent Gas
  • Thames Water
  • British Telecoms (Openreach)
  • UK Power Networks
  • Affinity Water
  • Virgin Media

Any utility companies that work on the public highway must comply with laws, such as:

  • Safety of their works site and excavations
  • Standard of the reinstatement of the carriageway, footway, footpath and verges
  • Qualifications of the employees undertaking the works
  • Notification by these undertakers to the Council for proposed works
