Traffic regulation orders

Traffic regulation orders (TROs) are legal arrangements that allow the police or civil enforcement officers to enforce various traffic regulations. 

We may implement a TRO for one or more of the following reasons:

  • avoiding danger to persons or traffic
  • preventing damage to the road or to buildings nearby
  • facilitating the passage of traffic
  • preventing use by unsuitable traffic
  • preserving the character of a road especially suitable for walking or horse riding
  • preserving or improving amenities of the area through which the road runs
  • for any purpose specified in paragraphs (a) to (c) of the Environment Act 1995 in relation to air quality

How to make a new request, remove or amend a TRO

If you're doing some building work that affects a public right of way (PROW), you can close or divert a PROW by applying for a temporary TRO.

For all other requests, email the traffic management team and tell us:

  • what restriction you want to have put in place, removed or amended
  • the reason for this request

A senior engineer will investigate before replying to you.

Make a comment or objection

We advertise permanent TROs:

  • on this website
  • in the local press
  • on street lights at the location

If you want to comment on a proposed TRO, email the traffic management team.

If you want to object to a proposed TRO, write to Director of Governance, Civic Centre, Darwall Street, Walsall, WS1 1TP. You'll need to include the TRO reference and your reasons for objecting.
