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
