Anyone who carries out street works must reinstate the street once the work is finished, in line with the ‘Specification of the reinstatement of openings in highways’ (SROH) standards. The fourth edition of SROH (2020) became statutory guidance in May 2021.

With traffic flows increasing and vehicles getting heavier, reviewing the reinstatement category of streets is paramount in ensuring that your roads can cope with the changes. Badly reinstated roads not recorded at the correct category can lead to more problems including potholes.

GeoPlace aids authorities in reassessing Reinstatement categories using a Calculator that uses traffic count and flow data from multiple sources, combined with growth and wear factors. It ensures comprehensive reinstatement specifications and updates the reinstatement category accordingly.

Our Reinstatement reviews include the following:

  • Identify sources of data needed to undertake a review
  • Data matching to help identify relevant criteria applicable to reinstatement
  • Create outputs suitable for internal review and consultation packs for relevant stakeholders if needed
  • Update DTF files to reflect the new network
