Road closures and temporary traffic orders

Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders

A temporary traffic regulation order (TTRO) is a legal document which closes or restricts traffic movement on a road.
We can issue a TTRO for:

  • roadworks
  • large deliveries or cranes on the road
  • tv or movie filming
  • special events on the road (eg parades, festivals, races, street parties). A government guide gives more details

How to apply

For further information download our application pack which contains full details of how to apply for a TTRO and charges associated.

Due to the legal processes involved, and the need to advertise any closure in the local newspaper, we require six weeks notice to process a TTRO.
