Temporary traffic order

If a road needs to be closed for road works or development works, a temporary traffic order must be processed under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.

If emergency works are being carried out using a road closure, a temporary traffic order must be processed under Section 14(2) of the same act.

Applying for a licence

You must apply for a licence 12 weeks before the works begin. This will enable coordination and processing of the road closure.
