JAG(UK) supporting the industry during Covid-19


These are strange and tough times testing the strength of us all. Family friends and work colleagues facing isolation and some uncertainty. However, our strength, resolve and collective will to move forward and make things better will see us through this, of that I have no doubt.

Responding to COVID-19

JAG(UK) is working closely with all agencies involved in managing the effects of the restrictions and supporting industry where it can. This is an industry wide support role working closely with Government, Utility and Highway colleagues to try and maintain services and preparing for changes as the crisis unfolds. The industry has solid framework legislation, but we need to be agile, consistent and transparent in our thinking and delivery.

We have a dedicated page on our website which brings together the various guidance notes from JAG(UK), HAUC(UK), DfT, Welsh and Scottish and Northern Ireland Governments around street and road works. We will keep this updated over time. See www.jaguk.org/news/cov...

Here at JAG(UK) we are beginning to rethink our strategies in community connection and harnessing the technology to reach authorities and industry in a more consistent and transparent way. Regular meetings are taking place and information to the community has been well received. Meetings both individually, regionally and nationally are taking place using technology without the need to travel, increasing efficiency and connectivity.
