New road works website for Scotland

Scottish Road works commissioner John Goodey last week launched a new online mapping service to provide motorists with road-works information.
Road users can log on to the website to see visual representations of the Scottish Road Works Register, the electronic database used to coordinate and manage road works.

Goodey’s role was enacted by the Transport (Scotland) Act 2005 last July.

He said the new site would allow the public to find out what road works are being carried out anywhere in Scotland, how long they are planned to last, and what their impact is likely to be.

“The website is a major step forward in making information accessible in an easy-to-use format,” Goodey said.

Goodey also has the power to impose financial penalties on roads authorities who fail to comply with their duty to coordinate and on utilities which fail to cooperate.
