Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

1.  Regulation 4 has the effect of placing a new requirement on street authorities with regard to the form in which they are to keep street works registers as required by section 53 of the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991. Previously, a street works register could be kept in any form, but under new regulation 3(1) of the Street Works (Registers, Notices, Directions and Designations) Regulations 1992 (“the Principal Regulations”) they must be kept in compliance with Part I of the British Standards Institution (BSI) publication entitled “Spatial data— sets for geographic referencing” (BS 7666). Copies of this publication can be obtained from the BSI, Linford Wood, Milton Keynes MK14 6LE and also from HMSO bookshops.

2.  Regulation 5 amends the table below regulation 3(2) of the Principal Regulations and makes the relevant undertaker responsible for securing the registration of certain information in place of the highway authority.
