Welcome to our new website!

You’ve probably noticed that things have changed a bit. We haven’t finished updating all our pages yet, so some sections are still using this design. Please bear with us...

Temporary Traffic Order

If a road needs to be closed for road works or development works a Temporary Traffic Order must be processed under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. If Emergency works are being carried out a Temporary Traffic Order will be processed under Section 14(2) of the same act.

There is a requirement to apply for a Temporary Traffic Order 12 weeks before works are due to commence. This is to enable coordination and processing of the road closure.

The fee for a planned traffic order is £2,001.00. This includes the administration fees and advertising costs for the order. Send applications to: temporarytrafficorders@southwark.gov.uk.
