Traffic Management Act 2004

The Traffic Management Act 2004 was implemented from the 1st April 2008 across the United Kingdom. The Traffic Management Act (TMA) is being brought in to help tackle congestion and reduce disruption on the road network.  The TMA has several parts, but the section for connection purposes covers street works activity.

This part of the TMA will increase the requirements of the administration side of street works, and give further powers to local authorities for them to fulfil their duties under the TMA.

There are some key changes that you need to be aware of if any of the work we must carry out to deliver your connections takes place on the highway or on roads, footpaths and so on that will become adopted by the local authority.

  • The duration of the works includes all works on site, setting up, excavating, installation of utility connections, reinstatement and clearing up.
  • The forward notices can only be issued to the local authority once we have received your acceptance of our quotation.
  • If changes to works are needed following your acceptance, we need to know as quickly as possible to be able to liaise with the local authority in order to deliver you your connections.
  • If your development requires us to work in more than one street then TMA requires that we serve one notice per street.

Further detail about the Traffic Management Act can be found at the Department for Transport’s website.

What Our Customers Say

Good old fashioned customer service. Lily, my first contact was polite, very communicative and knowledgeable about the service they offered and was a delight to talk to. Tegan, the contract person was efficient and so far has kept me up to date with all I need to know. I would recommend the company to others on their customer service alone.

- Debbie

I have used Crown Energy several times and they have made my life so easy dealing with all the utilities. Cheryl was so helpful and bubbly, always returning my calls and dealing with any issues I had. She is a credit to the company and will definitely be using them again on future projects.

- Mr Manchester

I have used Crown Energy on a number of projects over the years in or around the London area. They are a great partner with their links in the energy industry which allows me the time to focus on the construction side of my projects.
