Street works

Information about working on the highway and licences and permits that may be needed, reporting issues, excavation in public land and highways charges.

Where can I find out information about road works or Street Works?

All road and street works in the East Riding are displayed on the website: - Road/Street Works East Riding

Please note: there should always be a sign on-site showing who is doing the work, how long it is expected to take and who to ring in case of an emergency.

Can I make an enquiry about road works in the area?

Permits are displayed on the map below. Clicking on a marker will provide the name of the company carrying out the work, the dates and the expected traffic management.

General complaints about traffic delays caused by the work, the behaviour of workmen etc should be directed to the relevant company carrying out the work.

Issues with the traffic management layout, signage or defective reinstatements should be reported to our Street Works team:

Tel: (01482) 395050

What should I do if I need to excavate in the road, footpath or verge?

If you need to excavate on publicly-maintained land, for example to install a new water pipe or another utility service, you must have a license AND a permit. Publicly-maintained land includes highways, footpaths, verges and cycleways.
