Report roadworks

You can report street faults (including traffic light faults) and roadworks with our online tool, Report IT.

Roadworks on LondonWorks

LondonWorks has information on current and planned roadworks taking place across the Capital.

Find out:

  • Where roadworks are taking place
  • How long the work will last
  • Who is doing the work and how to contact them

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

TfL Lane Rental Scheme

In 2012, we introduced the TfL Lane Rental Scheme (TLRS) to reduce the disruption caused by road/street works on our busiest roads at peak times. To ensure the Scheme remains effective, we updated the locations and timings on 1 July 2014. Find out more about the TLRS refresh.

Code of Conduct for roadworks

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

This was revised in June 2012, and now commits TfL, 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 to erect scaffolding, cranes or place skips or any other structure on any of the roads we look after, you will need to apply for a highway licence.
