Functions in relation to the Scottish Road Works Register

Functions in relation to the Scottish Road Works Register: section 113

490.Section 113 of the Act makes a minor change to section 112A of the 1991 Act regarding the provision of public access to the Scottish Road Works Register. Rather than requiring direct access to the physical register, which in practical terms would require specific training and knowledge to be able to navigate, section 112A of the 1991 Act, as amended, requires that the Commissioner make specified information contained within the register publicly available. This duty extends specifically to information regarding the timing, location, duration and purpose of the work, as well as any other information prescribed by Scottish Ministers.

491.The Commissioner is also required to make information in the register available to persons authorised to carry out works of any description in a road, and to persons who appear to the Commissioner to have a sufficient interest in the information to be permitted to access it.
