Apply for a temporary traffic restriction

How to apply

We can temporarily close or divert roads to allow for maintenance or emergencies.

You must give us at least 10 weeks' notice of the restriction required. You must agree to meet the full costs.

We publish all planned closures as notices in local newspapers. We also send letters to district and parish councils, emergency services and bus companies.

We offer a discount of £100 for applications (including emergency works) where payment is made electronically rather than by invoice:

  1. select ‘card’ as your payment method on the application
  2. we will then contact you to make payment after the temporary traffic restriction process has been completed
