Street Works UK welcomes delay to Street Manager

27 Mar

Chief Executive of Street Works UK Clive Bairsto CBE has given his reaction to the government’s passing of regulations to delay the go-live date for Street Manager until 1st July 2020:

“I am pleased to see that the Department for Transport has today delayed the implementation of Street Manager until 1st July 2020. This will provide our sector with much needed certainty, to help ensure essential works can still take place at this difficult time for our country.

The safety of the public and our operatives is at the forefront of our mind and as an organisation, we are working closely with the government and our partners at the Joint Authorities Group (JAG), to ensure that essential works take place and supply chains keep operating where possible.

Our country is living through extraordinary times, but I am reassured by the steps we are taking together to ensure that essential utility services stay running.”
