What are Section 58 restrictions?

Section 58 restrictions protect streets following the completion of substantial works and prevent the new works from being excavated by other works promoters or for successive works to take place in the same location.

This protection would legally prevent future planned works from taking place for a pre-determined time once the works have been completed.

Different periods of restriction apply depending on the type of work completed and the reinstatement category of that street.  These can range from six months to five years.
