Fiona Encourages Participation in Consultation on How Utility Companies Must Reinstate Roads After Completing Street Works

Fiona is encouraging people to take part in the Department for Transport's consultation on a new edition of 'the Specification for the Reinstatement of Openings in Highways' (SROH). This is a statutory code of practice that utility companies must adhere to when reinstating roads after completing street works, an issue of local concern with a number of people in the constituency raising it with Fiona.

The new edition includes:

  • new asphalt standards to keep roads pothole free for longer
  • clarification of areas which are currently open to interpretation
  • allowing innovative surfacing materials to be used
