For the purpose of the Manual for Smart Streets, ‘Authority’ refers to any authority organisation with an interest in the management of traffic and street services (including roads, and highways). This includes, but is not limited to Local, Regional or National authorities involved in highway maintenance, engineering works on the highway, or management of traffic services such as public transport or traffic management and control infrastructure. For example, this includes various ‘Highway authorities’ as defined in part 1 of the Highways Act 1980 or organisations exercising functions of ‘the network management authority’ as defined in the Traffic Management Act 2004.
