Factsheet: Temporary Traffic Orders for works

no posts


You can apply for a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO) for works because:

  • the works are to be carried out on or near the road
  • there is a likelihood of danger to the public
  • serious damage to the road needs repairing.

We need a minimum of three months’ notice to introduce a temporary traffic order for planned work.

For an emergency closure due to a burst water or gas main, phone 01392 383329.



  • Closure or restrictions by Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO) for planned works – £800
  • Closure or restrictions by Temporary Traffic Regulation Notice (TTRN) for emergencies – £200
  • Extending a TTRO for up to 18 months – £200
  • Deferring the start date for an order which has been processed and advertised and so has to be re-advertised – £500
  • If you cancel a TTRO before it has been advertised the fee will be lowered – £200

If you need ‘no waiting’ cones there may be an additional cost.
