Traffic Regulation Orders
What are TROs?
A Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) is the legal document required to support a range of measures, which govern or restrict the use of public roads, including:
- Double yellow lines
- One-way streets
- Banned turns
- Bus lanes
- Traffic calming
Why do we need TROs?
UK law requires that TROs be in place to enable the police or, in the case of yellow lines and bus lanes, the council, to enforce these restrictions.
To create a TRO
To create a TRO the following statutory procedure to be followed:
- Consultation with the emergency services and other public bodies. Local interest groups such as residents and traders may be consulted where appropriate.
- Advertisement of the TRO by placing a notice in the local press and displaying notices in the roads affected. Objections are then considered through the appropriate procedure before it is decided how the matter will be taken forward.
- The TRO is formally made and introduced.The entire process can take many months to complete especially if objections result in the TRO being changed and re-advertised.
