Keeping people safe at roadworks

We have produced a temporary traffic management handbook that sets out good practice for those involved with carrying out roadworks and other construction related activities on TfL's road network (TLRN)

Find out about roadworks

LondonWorks has information on current and planned roadworks taking place.

Find out:

  1. Where roadworks are taking place
  2. How long the work will last
  3. Who is doing the work and how to contact them

LondonWorks is run by us in partnership with boroughs and utility companies.

TfL lane rental scheme

The TfL lane rental scheme (TLRS) was introduced in June 2012. It applies to the most traffic-sensitive locations and times of day. It covers 56% of the Transport for London Road Network (TLRN).

The scheme encourages behaviour change and minimises highway occupation, by applying a daily charge.

Code of Conduct for roadworks

The Mayor has worked with utility companies to establish a code of conduct that cuts delays and congestion caused by roadworks.

This was revised in June 2012, and now commits us, the six major utilities operating in London and all 33 London boroughs to specific targets that will reduce disruption from roadworks.

Highway licences

If you need scaffolding, cranes, skips or any other structure on any of the roads we look after, you need to apply for a highway licence.

Licence to undertake street works

If you need a licence to place or maintain apparatus in the highway, you must apply for a section 50 licence under the New Road and Street Works Act 1991.
