Scottish Road Works Technical Consultation 2022


The Transport Scotland Road Works Policy Team are holding a consultation event that starts on 13 July 2022 and runs for eight weeks ending on 7 September 2022. The proposed consultation is required in order to support the Roadworks policy stance following the publication of The Transport (Scotland) Act 2019 (“2019 Act”).

Why we are consulting

The aim of this consultation is to ask some specific technical questions regarding Qualifications of supervisors and operatives, which is covered in Section 116 of the 2019 Act, and Reinstatement quality plans, which is covered in Section 118 of the 2019 Act. This consultation may well result in the conclusion that the current process is sufficient. Therefore, we have not currently committed to any specific changes or new statute.

In total, there are four questions to answer - three for Qualifications of supervisors and operatives, and one for Reinstatement Quality Plans. In order to provide an answer there is a mixture of check boxes, as well as text boxes which will enable the respondents to explain their views.

We would like your views, supported by evidence where possible, to inform these potential changes.
