Crane Operations and Crane Oversail
A licence is required under Section 169 of the Highways Act 1980, to place a crane on the public highway or oversail the highway with a crane.
Crane operations include using a crane, cherry picker, scissor lift or any type of mobile elevated working platform.
Our Network Management Team processes all applications except those on Red Routes which are licenced by Transport for London (TfL).
Contact TfL Forward Planning at TMANotifications@tfl.gov.uk if you wish to place a crane/oversail a crane on a Red Route.
