Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs)

What is a TRO?

A Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) is a legal order that enables us to manage traffic and parking in the city. There are three main types of TRO we use:

  1. Temporary TROs for road works
  2. Permanent TROs for restrictions that will be made on a permanent basis
  3. Experimental TROs for restrictions that are trialled on an experimental basis

TROs normally comprise of:

  • Parking restrictions - also known as waiting restrictions which are typically yellow lines.
