Roadworks charges

Utility companies may have to pay local councils to dig up the road during peak hours

The initiative, proposed by the Transport Secretary, should decrease the number of roadworks that are conducted during the busiest hours of the day and make utility companies perform maintenance during off-peak hours and overnight. The charge that could be levied may be as much as £2,500 per day. It is estimated that roadworks cost the economy £4 billion a year.
