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 Act 1984.

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.
