Reasons roadworks could be inactive and how to report them.

We work closely with utility companies and developers to coordinate essential roadworks.

Why roadworks could be inactive

Roadworks could be inactive because:

  • it's after normal working hours
  • multiple excavations are open due to mains replacement and workers need to leave some open for final connections
  • water mains are being chlorinated
  • mains are on pressure test
  • concrete is curing
  • gas is venting

How to report inactive roadworks

You can report roadworks where no activity has taken place for a long period of time to us.

Report inactive roadworks 

We'll check with whoever is responsible for the roadworks to make sure work is being carried out in a timely way.
