Do I need Works Over approval?

Whether you’re working on a public or private site, it’s important to reduce the risk of damaging our pipes, manholes and other equipment. 

By protecting and maintaining our assets, we ensure a secure and reliable service.

If you plan to dig or build near our assets (pipes or manholes), you must check whether you need our approval to start work. Digging, piling or blasting may damage our assets, or prevent us from maintaining them.
