  • Please can someone from Streetworks / Highways inform me why no action required? No provisions for pedestrians on footway as footway is blocked. Yet on your website regarding applying for a scaffold license it states; Pedestrians

    You should let pedestrians pass beneath the scaffolding on the existing footway, if possible.

    If this is not possible, you must have a signed and guarded walkway outside the scaffolding. We will need to carry out a joint site inspection and apply extra conditions.

    You must distance the public from where scaffolding materials are in use or stored.

    You must take all reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of the public. You should give particular thought to the needs of children elderly people and people with disabilities

    I don’t think this is the case.

    Footway closed by scaffolding and no pedestrian access and no works being carried out. Netting closed off footway both ends and less than 1.2m of footway for pedestrians to walk by. Completely unacceptable no provisions and access blocked to Bus Stop with no temporary stop in place.

    Footway still blocked by netting and scaffolding. Completely unacceptable no provisions for pedestrians. Can someone from Streetworks inform me why this isn't being addressed as a matter of urgency.
