Apply for a Road Closure

Information on how to apply for a road closure.

There are two types of road closure.

  • One type deals with a period of up to 5 days closure and the other deals with over 5 days.
  • It will take 4 weeks to process an application for a 5 day closure and 6 weeks for anything over 5 days (due to the legal requirement for this road closure to be advertised in local press).

You need to contact Roads and Transportation Services to give full details of location, reason, dates, duration and the physical extent of works that require the road to be closed. This is a lengthy process and must meet the legal requirements of a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order.
Charges for this process will be made at actual cost price.
