Parking restrictions require a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) and are installed to improve road safety and reduce congestion

What is a TRO?

A TRO is a legal document that creates a local traffic rule. This requires road users to obey certain conditions. These could include:

  • One-way systems.
  • Speed limits.
  • Weight limits.
  • Movement and waiting restrictions and prohibitions.

Why are they needed?

  • To control or direct traffic.
  • To reduce and manage congestion
  • To reduce danger to all road users
  • To prevent damage to roads, bridges etc.
  • To preserve the character, or amenity, of an area

How are TROs created?

The Transport and Highway Services team use a scoring system to assess all TRO requests.

All requests are reviewed three times a year.
