3rd Edition of the Co-ordination Code of Practice - DELAYED

  • The follow extract is from the HAUC (UK) website:

The Notices Working Party are aware that many "NRSWA colleagues" have been querying the progress towards "sign-off" of the 3rd Edition of the Co-ordination Code of Practice, as they wish to make decisions about their noticing systems and business processes. The NWP Joint Chairs have recently been in discussion with the DfT, and it is now apparent that the 3rd edition of the Code will most likely be delayed until at least 1 July 2004, due to the potential impact and necessary changes required to the Regulations and to the Code itself if the proposed Traffic Management Bill is implemented.

A further announcement about the implementation of the Code will be made as soon as confirmation of the dates is given by the DfT.

Harry Pendleton and Chris Tunstall

HAUC(UK) Joint Chairs.
