New Roads and Street Works Act 1991: Code of Practice for the Co-ordination of Works in Roads

Appnedix F

Paper Transfer of Notices

F1. Introduction

F1.1 In the event of the SRWR electronic notification system in Scotland being unavailable for use for a period of time, then the notification system will revert to a paper based system. It will be the responsibility of the Commissioner to determine when this will come into effect. It is likely to be implemented if the electronic system is unavailable for greater than 48 hours.

F2 Paper Standard Forms

F2.1 Four standard forms have been created which will be used as the only method of co-ordinating works. The forms are available in electronic format on the SRWR. The four forms are:

  • Notice Creation Form
  • Reinstatement Form
  • Damage Form
  • Inspection Notice Form

These standard forms are also available on the Commissioners website at as downloads.

These forms shall be completed where required and in accordance with the requirements of this code. The forms can be sent electronically by email or by fax. It is the responsibility of the sender to ensure that the works have been received by the road works authority and that once the SRWR has been restored these are entered retrospectively on the SRWR.
