Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs)

A TRO is a legal document that restricts or prohibits the use of the highway network, in line with The Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.

We use them to:

  • help us to manage the highway network for all road users, including pedestrians
  • improve road safety and access to facilities

A TRO can only be proposed for the reasons set out in the legislation and a scheme can only be proposed if the regulations allow it to be signed and lined accordingly.

Examples of schemes that require a TRO include:

  • temporary road closures
  • temporary footpath closures
  • pedestrian zones
  • speed limits
  • on-street parking restrictions
  • weight limits
  • one-way streets and banned turns
  • prohibition of driving
