Utility companies

In the UK, utility providers (gas, water, electric, telecom) have a statutory duty to provide and maintain their infrastructure, which means that, where necessary, they are entitled to carry out unplanned roadworks (works on the highway network). See The New Roads and Street Works Act 1991

Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders

A Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO) is the legal process used to implement temporary restrictions e.g. closure to a road or public right of way, change to a one way system, parking, speed or weight restrictions and changes to a right or left turn only. 

It's also used to suspend permanent Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO) e.g. one way street, parking (including parking bays), to ensure safety whilst works or events take place. 

Leicestershire County Council, as the Highway Authority, can authorise a TTRO. The  closure or restriction is made by an order under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.

 An order can be made to cover planned situations, or an urgent notice can be issued if the regulation is needed without delay for emergency situations. 

The process lead in time for planned works or events requiring a TTRO is 12 weeks.

This period is required to consult with the appropriate organisations and make any arrangements for the order to be advertised in the local press.

If an emergency closure if required due to an incident that is likely to cause danger to persons or property on or adjacent to the public highway please contact our Network Management Team immediately.
