A Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) is a legal order, which allows us to regulate the speed, movement and parking of vehicles and regulate pedestrian movement, which are enforceable by law. The act governing Traffic Regulation Orders is the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.

How long it takes to introduce a TRO

On average, a Traffic Regulation Order will take between 9 to 12 months from design to implementation.

Why it takes so long to introduce a TRO

The procedure includes statutory periods of advertising and consultation which have to be adhered to otherwise the legality of the order may be compromised.

Who enforces TROs

The council's Civil Enforcement Officers enforce the Traffic Regulation Orders on the public highways.

Where you can see a TRO

You can view them online:

The Traffic Penalty Tribunal is an independent body whose impartial, independent adjudicators consider appeals by motorists and vehicle owners.

TROs can also be inspected at the council's Legal Service and Highways Service by appointment. A copy can be requested but may be subject to a charge.
