The Roadworks Pledge
As part of his on-going drive to reduce the amount of roadworks in London, the Mayor has asked Transport for London, the London Boroughs and all those digging up the Capital's roads to pledge to do all they can to minimise unnecessary roadworks disruption and ensure works are well managed. To help us achieve this, he has asked that you report any roadworks that do not follow the Roadworks Pledge:
The Mayor of London's Roadworks Pledge
- Be tidy and safe with a clutter-free site so it is safe for pedestrians, cyclists and other road users
- Always explain what's happening through detailed, clear and consistent signage
- Always have activity on site or, if not, explain why (eg concrete is drying)
- Take up as little road/pavement space as possible with a compact working area and eliminating the unnecessary use of cones, safety barriers and storage of materials
- Help keep London moving by working outside peak hours, re-opening the road to traffic at peak times and, where this is not possible, working 24/7 or extended hours to complete works as quickly as possible. Diversion routes should be clearly signed
- Examples of roadworks sites
- Signage in place
- Clean and tidy
- Only minimum space required taken
- Activity on site
- Not safe
- Cluttered and untidy
- No signage explaining works
- No activity
Signage should set out:
- Who is undertaking the work?
- Why the work is taking place?
- Working hours
- Contact details (phone number)
- Permit number
Elements of the Roadworks Pledge have also been incorporated into the 2012/13 Mayor's Code of Conduct for Roadworks (PDF 50KB).
The Department for Transport publish guidelines on the safe management of roadworks.
