Urban clearways are used to ease traffic flow in towns and cities during busy periods.
The sign for an urban clearway stipulates information on the particular times that the urban clearway rules are in effect. An urban clearway could be enforced for example on weekdays between 8am and 9.30am, then again between 4.30pm and 6.30pm. At the end of the zone, there will be an ‘urban clearway end’ sign to tell you that the rules are no longer in force.
During the hours of enforcement for an urban clearway, you can’t stop or park your vehicle except briefly to pick-up or drop-off passengers. When the urban clearway is outside its hours of operation you can stop or park where the normal road markings allow.
All costs stated are for guidance only.
Figures provided are estimates and are reviewed annually, with all costs subject to a site survey assessment.
Traffic Regulation Orders
Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) are a legal requirement for some traffic schemes. They are required whenever the use of a road is being restricted or prohibited (for example parking restrictions, banned turns or road closures).
As part of the TRO process, a public consultation takes place. The traffic scheme may be revised if any comments or objections are received.
All parking restrictions will require a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) with a minimum cost of £7,500. They are also subject to a public consultation prior to being installed.
