The honest answer is yes.
See here regarding what a Section 58 is:
Section 58's may be put in place for several reasons, for example after full carriageway resurfacing in which the Highway Authority are looking to protect there asset (the road). It does not affect emergency works (gas escape, water leaks) or some other types of works (generally new supplies - electrical, gas, water etc.).
The Highway Authority can give consent for works to be carried out but there may be conditions. For example if the road has been fully resurfaced/newly built then they make impose a condition that any reinstatement is full width of the road rather than a smaller, more common, trench/patch.
It's down to Openreach (in this instance) and the relevant Highway Authority to discuss such circumstances. Agreements can be reached or alternative methods found for works to go ahead.
