What a TTRN is, the application process and how much it costs.
When you need a TTRN
You need a TTRN when you want to stop or limit vehicles or pedestrians' traffic on a road or footway.
You can use a TTRN for:
- unplanned work including urgent water leaks
- planned work lasting no more than two days
You need to apply for a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO) for planned roadworks and building works next to the road such as large developments.
A TTRN can last up to:
- two days for planned works, such as filming
- five days for unplanned works or urgent water works
- 21 days if public safety is a concern
How long it takes
Submit this application at least 2 weeks before the proposed closure for planned works, except in case of emergency works or urgent water leaks.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you want us to consider a shorter notice period.
What you'll need to do
There needs to be an alternative footway for people to use if the footway is closed. This is usually a temporary walkway along the side of the closed footway.
Where applicable you'll also have to:
- apply to suspend parking bay two weeks in advance and let residents know about it
- have temporary street and traffic management signs in place
The cost of a TTRN is £620. This doesn't include any temporary traffic management costs, such as diversion signs or barriers.
No refunds will be offered.
A change of date needs to be notified before the commencement date and must be in writing.
