Roadworks and street faults
- Report a problem with roadworks with our street care reporting tool.
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)

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 69% of the Transport for London Road Network (TLRN).
The scheme encourages behaviour change and minimises highway occupation, by applying a daily charge.
The Roadworks Charter is a collaboration between TfL and London's biggest utility companies. It sets out a series of principles and targets which achieved together will ensure roadworks are carried out efficiently and safely, keeping disruption to a minimum and supporting sustainable travel.
Those signed up to the Charter will commit to improving their performance around failed inspections and safety related response times. They will reduce disruption to road users during peak periods and commit to sharing forward plans to improve collaboration. Additionally their commitments include improving provision for pedestrians, cyclists and bus passengers through their works.
London Permit Scheme
We've signed up to the London Permit Scheme for improved coordination of roadworks.
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.
Suspending cycle hire docking stations
The following guidance is provided for utility companies that need to arrange a suspension or temporary removal of a cycle hire docking station to facilitate your works
Bus stop suspensions
The following guidance is provided for utility companies and highway authorities that need to arrange a temporary suspension of a bus stop to facilitate works.

Temporary traffic regulation orders (TTROs) and temporary consolidated suspension requests (TCSRs)
if you are a utility company and a restriction is required to prohibit the movement of traffic in order to carry out street works, a temporary traffic regulation order must be obtained under section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.
The following guide is provided to utility companies that need to request a temporary traffic regulation order (TTRO) and a temporary consolidated suspension request (TCSR) in relation to the temporary suspension of parking, loading and disabled bays and bus lanes.
If you would like to apply for a TTRO and a TCSR, please visit, tfl.startraqdome.com
