Vault - Access to Information on the Location of Underground Pipes and Cables

 Scotland is leading the world with a new way to share and access information on the location of underground pipes and cables. This major new development known as the Scottish Community Apparatus Data Vault (or Vault for short - a vault being an underground storage place for precious items, in this case information about our buried assets), will make underground pipe and cable information accessible via the Scottish Road Works Register (SRWR) (Scotland's existing national database for the electronic transfer, retention and management of road works data).

The aim of the service is to enable access to information about all underground pipes and cables from one centralised location.
