Code of Practice for the Co-ordination of Street Works and Works for Road Purposes and Related Matters

Date published: 23 November 2004

This Code of Practice provides practical guidance on a wide range of responsibilities of street authorities and undertakers in relation to street or road works.


The Street Works (Northern Ireland) Order 1995 (the Order) as amended by The Street Works (Amendment) (Northern Ireland) Order 2007 forms the legislative framework within which DfI Roads carries out these duties.

Details of the regime used to carry out these duties are controlled by subordinate legislation contained in Regulations and associated Codes of Practice issued under the Order.

The Street Works Codes of Practice detail the workings of the legislation. Currently there are 6 Codes all related to the 1995 Order.
