Our relationship with HAUC(UK) and Street Works UK
JAG(UK) representatives at every level contribute to the work of the highway authorities and utilities developing efficient collaboration with utility works promoters to reduce traffic disruption from operations. JAG(UK) is represented at HAUC(UK) by the three national chairs, two English regional chairs and the JAG Chair and Vice-Chair.
The Secretary provides assistance to the Highways side of HAUC(UK) and also attends. Position papers and guidance notes adopted by the highway authorities' organisations are offered to HAUC(UK) at the equivalent organisational level, as the basis for adopting agreed guidance.
