In addition to highway legislation such as the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 and The Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002 (TSRGD), clients and their agents, designers, contractors and workers need to ensure that they comply with their duties under health and safety law.
This requires that duty holders assess work-related risks and eliminate, reduce and control significant risks, so far as is reasonably practicable.
