Temporary road closure
It is sometimes necessary to temporarily restrict the movement of traffic or impose waiting restrictions on the public highway.
A Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO), which is arranged by the Council, is most commonly used to do this.
TTRO’s are used close roads for temporary situations such as roadworks, but 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 or to enable an event to take place.
Only applications in relation to works on the public highway will be considered.
