Temporary road closures

Anyone wishing to impose a temporary road closure or restriction must apply for a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order/Notice.

Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO)

This permits a restriction to be in place for anything up to 18 months on the highway and six months on a public right of way. This applicable for planned works on the highway which are planned to take longer than five consecutive days.

The charge for a TTRO is £2,100.

Temporary Traffic Regulation Notice (TTRN)

This is to facilitate urgent non-planned works where the council considers an early start on site would be beneficial it would be inappropriate to complete the process involved in preparing an 18-month TTRO or for works of a minor nature on minor roads. The maximum duration of this notice is five days.

The charge for a notice is £950.

Temporary Traffic Regulation Notice (TTRN) 

This is to facilitate emergency works only where there is a likelihood of danger to the public, or serious damage to the road. The maximum duration of this notice is 21 days.

The charge for a notice is £950.

Applying for a TTRO/TTRN

The application will take six weeks to process for a TTRO and two weeks for a TTRN with a five-day duration. A street works permit will be required; statutory undertakers will need to submit this via EToN and non-statutory undertakers will also need to complete a Highway Notice application. 

You will need to complete the below application for a temporary road closure or restriction and return the form to roadclosures@sthelens.gov.uk

Please ensure you have fully read and understand the temporary road closure guidance notes before completing the form.
