The Traffic Management Act 2004 introduced a new legislative framework for the regulation and control of activities on the highway network with the intention to provide better conditions for all road users through proactive management of the road network.
To help professionals in the industry embrace the new legislation and to encourage the sharing of good practice, knowledge and ideas Transport for London created an initiative called London Street Works, which became the One Road Network in 2010.
The initiative has continued to grow and take on new members from all sectors of the highway and street works industry. We now have over 4,000 registered members from numerous organisations, including highway authorities, utility companies, contractors, consultants and academic institutions.
The One Road Network provides thousands of members nationwide with information on industry disciplines such as: coordination, parking enforcement, highway activities, inspections, permitting and events. It also includes health and safety information and a document library.
For more information on what One Road Network offers its members, download the flyer here.
One Road Network is driven by a steering group consisting of members from Transport for London (TfL), the Joint Authorities Group (JAG), national and regional Highways Authority and Utility Committee (HAUC) and National Joint Utilities Group (NJUG).
