We can authorise road markings where there is a need to restrict parking to help
increase traffic flow and prevent obstructions on the road. To do this, we must
create a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO), following a statutory legal process that
can take over 6 months to complete.
Traffic Regulation Orders
We can regulate and control traffic on the road network by promoting a Traffic Regulation
Order. Traffic regulation orders can be used to impose many restrictions including
yellow lines. Traffic Regulation Orders are created under the Road Traffic Regulation
Proposed Traffic Orders
A draft Traffic Regulation Order is prepared for various reasons including road safety
and assisting traffic flow. An Order remains in draft form until it has completed
its statutory process.
