Guidance on the use of road plates for temporarily returning roads with unreinstated (not filled in) excavations to service. Road plates can often be installed and removed quite quickly, making short term returns to service more practicable. The main reason for using them is to reduce traffic congestion during peak times - especially useful at heavily trafficked sites.
