View published TTRO notices for temporary restrictions on the highway, including road closures.
A Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO) is the legal process used to temporarily stop or limit vehicles or pedestrians on the highway.
TTROs can last up to 18 months and can be applied to roads, footways or Public Rights of Way (PRoWs). TTROs are most commonly used:
- to allow essential or emergency works to be safely carried out on the highway, such as installation or maintenance works to gas, electricity and water services
- for various events, for example road closures for running or social events
- for works next to the highway such as large developments
TTROs are made under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 and can be made to cover planned situations or an urgent notice can be issued if the regulation is needed for emergency situations.
We carry out a consultation with the police, emergency services and other professional bodies.
We notify the public by advertisements (notices) in the local press before we make the Temporary Regulation Order (TTRO).
