Proposed one-way system: Market Street and Church Street, Llangollen

Traffic Regulation Order: proposed one-way system - Market Street and Church Street in Llangollen

 

Hello, we’re consulting on a Traffic Regulation Order at Market Street and Church Street in Llangollen the effect of which will be a one-way system with traffic flowing:

  • Westbound in Market Street from its junction with Castle Street to its junction with East Street.
  • Westbound in Church Street from its junction with the A5 Regent Street to its
    junction with Chapel Street.

This Order forms part of ongoing works in relation to the Llangollen 2020 scheme. For more information, please visit the Llangollen 2020 page of the Council's website:

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 one-way system?


Most roads are designed to allow traffic to flow in two directions. One-way systems prohibit vehicles from travelling in a certain direction.

 

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:

 

Llangollen Library, Castle St, Llangollen LL20 8NU

 

Enforcement

If the Traffic Regulation Order goes ahead, any road user who ignores the one-way system may be subject to Police action including a fine, points on the driver’s licence and/or a court summons.
