Edinburgh Road Works Ahead Agreement

We developed the Edinburgh Road Works Ahead Agreement (ERWAA) in consultation with all public utilities operating in Edinburgh.

Signatories are making a public commitment to ensure roadworks are carried out as smoothly, competently and responsibly as possible, with proper road management arrangements in place. For example, roadworks sites must display public information boards to communicate details about the works, such as updates to duration or an explanation if work is suspended. 

The ERWAA addresses

  • the quality of road reinstatements
  • health and safety
  • coordination of roadworks
  • performance monitoring and management.
