The Department commissioned the Transport Research Laboratory and Halcrow in 2007 to evaluate Parts 2 to 4 of the Traffic Management Act 2004. Part 3 of the 2004 Act enables local highway authorities to create and operate street works permit schemes, and an evaluation of the effectiveness of these was carried out in 2018. ‘Gear change: a bold vision for cycling and walking’, published on 28 July 2020, included a commitment to review guidance relating to the Network Management Duty in Part 2 of the 2004 Act, to reflect the need for transport decarbonisation, encouraging healthier forms for transport and emphasis on technology.
