Road & Street Works Training

Course Info

The Roads & Street Works Act standardised all highways work to ensure the highways authorities and utilities companies co-ordinate their work activities. The aim was to improve road safety, reducing disruption and minimising congestion. SB training courses meet the requirements of the New Roads and Street Works Act (NRSWA). If you are involved with setting up traffic lights and signs or excavating the highway,  you need an appropriate training certificate for one person working in every team. This includes gas, water, electric and telecoms workers.
