If you wish to erect a crane on a public road, footway or footpath you must obtain a road occupation permit before doing so.
Under Section 58.1 of the Roads Scotland Act 1984 any person who, without the permission of the local roads authority, occupies the public road, footway or footpath will be deemed to be committing an offence. As such, they are liable to be issued with a fixed penalty notice by the Roads and Transportation Service.
