Road closures and restrictions

Any work on a road that means we have to close it or restrict traffic needs a traffic regulation order. This might be:

  • for road works to take place
  • because of building works being carried out near the road
  • for safety at an event
  • for events, street parties and fairs

Restrictions can be temporary or permanent and include:

  • road and footway closures
  • waiting and loading
  • one-way streets
  • speed limits
  • weight and width restrictions
  • access and turning restrictions
  • cycle and bus lanes
  • parking zones

Request a temporary road closure or restriction

If you're a contractor or event organiser and you need a temporary restriction or road closure you can apply for a temporary traffic regulation order.

We need at least six weeks' notice - for some closures this can be up to three months so that we can advertise diversions. You can close a footway for a maximum of six months and a carriageway for a maximum of 18 months.
