Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders

Anyone may apply for a temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, Section 14, affecting any public highway (whether road, footpath, cycleway, bridleway, etc) in Buckinghamshire, where a closure or restriction is in order to effect works on, within or adjoining the highway, or is necessary in the interests of public safety because of such works or other circumstances.

Three months notice is required for closure (including special events). The maximum temporary closure is six months, but the applicant can reapply to extend this, giving two months notice. From 1 April 2019, the charge for each closure is £1,820.

If the requisite period of notice is not received, the authority may require the works or event in question to be deferred.  It is important that the closure period is adequate to cater for any possible contingency.  An extension cannot be guaranteed but would incur further costs.  The maximum period that the highway or right of way is expected to be closed must be indicated, and will be advertised within any publicity given by the authority.

An Order or Notice temporarily prohibiting through vehicular traffic from using a highway has the effect of closing the highway in question, but normally protects pedestrian use and rights of access to properties along the affected highway.  Applicants will be required to ensure that such access is possible at all times, or, if this is not possible, to ensure that alternative arrangements are made which are satisfactory to all affected parties. 

Similar arrangements exist in relation to the closure of footpaths, etc where Orders or Notices prevent pedestrians, cyclists or horse-riders from using a particular route.  In the case of requests for an Order affecting a non-vehicular route, it will be assumed that the complete closure of the right of way is sought unless otherwise stated. Applicants should discuss the proposals with a rights of way officer before submitting the application.
