Roadworks and Road Closures

We're responsible for monitoring and co-ordinating road works in Rutland to keep the public safe and reduce congestion and delays on the highways. 

Below you'll find details of all the latest roadworks taking place in Rutland.

You can view more detailed information about these roadworks and future works by visiting the national roadworks.org website.

The interactive roadworks.org map is searchable and shows details about dates, severity of impact, and who is responsible for the works. You can also sign up for emails alerts for road works in your area.

Licences to work within the highway 

Any work within the adopted highway will need a licence from the highways authority. The highways authority issues application forms for the following works:

  • Road Closures
  • Traffic Lights
  • Scaffolds
  • Section 50 Licences
  • Dropped Kerbs
  • Traffic Lights
  • Skips
  • Licences to Cultivate/for benches

These licences enable us to ensure the works are carried out by an approved body with the correct insurances; they also help the council to coordinate work to mitigate congestion on the network. 

To apply for a licence please contact our Highways team by emailing: highways@rutland.gov.uk
