Apply for a temporary road closure for roadworks
If you are planning works that affect a road, pathway or public right of way, you need to send us a TRO/RC 01 or 02 application form.
Please note that these forms only give you permission to close a road or public right of way. If excavation is required, you may also need to apply for a Road Opening permit or a Section 50 licence.
Application for large scale temporary traffic regulation order/road closure (TRO/RC 01)
This form should be used when carrying out works on major roads, including all dual carriageways and class A roads, for temporary road closures, speed restrictions, contra-flows, weight restrictions, etc. The cost of this application is £432 plus advertising costs.
Application for temporary traffic regulation order/road closure (TRO/RC 02)
This form should be used for standard road closures and traffic regulation orders when carrying out works on all classes of roads and footpaths. If the restrictions are required for five days or less, the cost of this application will be £262.
