What is a Traffic Regulation Order?


Traffic Regulation Orders are legal documents that restrict or prohibit the use of the highway network, in line with The Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.


Traffic Regulation Orders help us to manage the highway network for all road users including pedestrians, and they aim to improve road safety and access to facilities in the areas for which they are proposed.


A Traffic Regulation Order can only be proposed for the reasons set out in the legislation, and a scheme can only be proposed if the regulations allow the scheme site to be enforced with appropriate highway signage or lines on the road or pavement.


Examples of schemes that require a Traffic Regulation Order include:


  • Prohibition of Waiting
  • Changes to speed limits
  • On-street parking restrictions
  • Weight limits / width limits or other vehicle restrictions
  • One-way streets


What is a prohibition of waiting?

A prohibition of waiting aims to stop the majority of vehicle users from stopping and waiting in their vehicles in the proposed area.

A full description of the proposed Traffic Regulation Order and a statement of the reasons for proposing it are available to download below. Hard copies of the proposed Order, and accompanying documents are also available for inspection at:


Ruthin Library, Record Street, Ruthin, LL15 1DS



If the Traffic Regulation Order goes ahead, any road user who waits, parks, or loads/unloads in the proposed locations is in breach of the terms of the Order will be liable for a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) and their vehicle may also be removed from that location.
