The National Joint Utilities Group (NJUG) has responded to the Scottish Government’s consultation on “improving the quality of roadworks” (published 20th July).
The government’s proposals contain a number of positive measures to improve the quality of road works which NJUG welcomes, including the introduction of quality plans and the focus on greater consistency between utilities and roads authorities.
There are a number of proposals which NJUG broadly supports in principle but where consistency, proportionality and balance are critical to ensure their implementation is successful. NJUG is keen to continue working with ministers and officials on the detailed implementation of these proposals to ensure that they work as effectively as possible.
