We, as the local Roads Authority, have a statutory duty to co-ordinate all works on the public road network. We must use our best endeavours to ensure that works are carried out safely, with the minimum of inconvenience to road users, and that the structure of the road is protected. This duty is overseen by the Scottish Road Works Commissioner, who is appointed by the Scottish Government. The Commissioner is the Keeper of the Scottish Road Works Register, which lists all road works in Scotland. This can be viewed using the link on the right hand side of this page. The road works that are listed on this site are the programmed and emergency works undertaken by, or on behalf of utility companies, construction companies and us.
We rarely excavate the road. We repair it or replace the surface. The utility companies such as gas, water or electricity are usually responsible for digging holes in the road. Legally the utility should display a sign at these works indicating who they are and what their 24 hour contact telephone number is. In the case of such works you should contact the utility company directly.
Transport Scotland maintain the M8, M80, M73, M74 and M77 motorways for the Scottish Government.
