Temporary road closures and traffic signals

Temporary road closures

If you need to temporarily close a road for works to be carried out, you can apply for a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO).

While a TTRO is most commonly used to close roads for temporary situations such as roadworks, they can also be used to ban a turning movement or remove parking. In addition, it can be used to temporarily suspend an existing restriction such as suspending a no-entry.

Apply for a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order

Who can apply?

All work promoters who do not use the Electronic Transfer of Notices (EToN) process including:

  • Anyone working in contract to a utility
  • Those working under a Section 171 or a Section 50 licence
  • Any organisation planning an event which involves either having to control or exclude vehicular or pedestrian traffic from the public highway must apply for a TTRO

Turn-around time

Eight weeks advanced notice is required to arrange a TTRO.

This is essential to ensure all the relevant official notifications are completed. You must allow sufficient time for the legal process to be completed.

Fees

Temporary Traffic Regulation Order – £1,410.
