Traffic regulation orders

Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders (TTROs)


TTROs are required when roads or footways are temporarily to be closed, or when parking controls or speed limits are to be introduced.

This may happen for events like gala days or when roadworks take place.

TTROs are for limited periods of time and do not require a consultation period - notice is given instead.

Notice for works of 5 days duration or less involves laminated A4 authorised paper notices being posted at the closure location. This notice usually gives details of why, where, how long and any diversion routes that are being used.

In emergency situations it is often not practicable to have notices posted before the road is closed but we aim to do this within 48 hours of an incident.

For planned TTROs (depending on their impact), we will normally also place an advert in the local press (as required by the legislation). 

Applications for a TTRO should be made using the attached form available in Related Documents.

Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) are made to ensure a road is being used in a safe, efficient manner.  

Examples of the type of restrictions included within a TRO include speed limits, waiting and loading, weight and access restrictions and one-way streets.

A list of TROs currently being considered by Renfrewshire Council is available on the Tell Me Scotland website.
