New Roads & Street Works

We offer a range of New Roads & Street Works courses including a standard 5 day programme for Operatives and Supervisors covering Units 1-7 & 9 for Operatives and 1 & 10-16 for Supervisors.

We also offer each unit separately for operatives and supervisors. The New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 places a duty on any person or organisation undertaking work involving the installation, renewal, maintenance or inspection of underground apparatus in any street or roadto ensure that work is under the control of competent persons. To satisfy the requirements of the Act, work involving breaking up the street must be arranged under the supervision of a person having a prescribed qualification as a supervisor.
