Communications App for Utilities & Contractors

Emphasise the necessity of works in a positive manner, improve customer communication and satisfaction levels to help achieve regulator service incentive rebates and protect brand reputation.


Nearly 2 million UK roads are dug up by or on behalf of utility companies alone each year. A pain point for many customers, residents and road users, how effective these streetworks are communicated can have a direct influence on satisfaction levels and organisational reputation. OFGEM and OFWAT are providing financial incentives for utilities that can demonstrate they are improving how they communicate the impact of roadworks, reducing complaints and improving customer feedback.

Communications App gives utilities & contractors the opportunity to control streetworks messaging via the UK’s roadworks information channel, roadworks.org. Emphasising the necessity of works in a positive manner, helps improve customer and stakeholder satisfaction levels, achieve regulator service incentive rebates and protect brand reputation.

Many utilities have already adopted roadworks.org Communications App, including Cadent, Wales & West Utilities, Northern Power Grid and Northern Gas Networks, benefiting from
