Training for the Scottish Road Works Register is arranged to be held quarterly.

A set of one-day training courses are scheduled for the following dates:

Target Audience

Tuesday 5 February

SRWR for Roads Authorities

New Roads Authority Users

Wednesday 6 February

SRWR for Promoters

New Works Promoter Users

Thursday 7 February

SRWR Advanced Noticing

Experienced SRWR Users


Both the introductory workshops explain how to submit new works notices and their status updates in line with current regulations and recommendations. The SRWR for Promoters workshop is also appropriate for new Roads Authority users who are only concerned with recording and updating works through their life cycle. The SRWR for Roads Authority course additionally covers the role of Roads Authorities in monitoring and coordinating works. Please note the prerequisites specified within the Course Definition which are essential for delegates to derive maximum benefit from the training.

The specialised course SRWR for Advanced Noticing will clarify the rules and procedures surrounding some of the more complex aspects of works noticing and illustrate how they are implemented on the Scottish Road Works Register using Symology’s Insight. The course is intended for Roads Authorities and Statutory Undertakers and is applicable to those who have previously attended the introductory course and require specific instruction on the operation of Advanced Notices. This workshop is not suitable for new users.  Please note the prerequisites specified within the Course Definition, which are essential for delegates to derive maximum benefit from the training.

Training will take place in Symology's offices at Glenbervie Business Centre, Glenbervie Business Park, Larbert FK5 4RB. There will be a charge of £265 payable to the Scottish Road Works Commissioner (note this charge is outwith the scope of VAT) per delegate for these courses.
