Provision of traffic regulation orders

Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs)

Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) cover temporary road closures, speed limits, double and single yellow line parking restrictions, on and off road pay and display parking, weight restrictions, one way streets and other traffic related restrictions. TROs are a legal document that creates a local traffic rule which requires road users to obey certain conditions.

TROs are made to complement new highway schemes or to ensure that construction and maintenance work can be carried out safely.

TROs are created to control or restrict the movement or waiting of traffic to:

  • assist traffic flows
  • control or direct traffic
  • improve road safety
  • preserve or improve the character or amenity of an area
  • prevent serious damage to roads, bridges etc.
  • reduce and manage congestion

Examples of TROs are:

  • double/single yellow lines
  • loading bays
  • one-way streets
  • weight limits
  • speed limits

If you have an enquiry about an existing TRO in Warwickshire you can contact Traffic and Road Safety Group.
