Temporary Road Closures and Restrictions

Current Road Closures and Restrictions

  • Temporary road closures
  • Temporary speed limits

These are usually required to facilitate roadworks.

Other forms of temporary traffic restrictions include:

  • One Way
  • Prohibition of Waiting
  • Weight limit

Road closures may also be required for local gala events or public gatherings.

Alternative traffic routes are identified for temporary road closures.

The granting of a temporary road closure to a contractor does not waive the requirement for other permits (e.g. road opening permit).

Apply for a Temporary Restriction

Anyone wishing to apply for a temporary restriction should return the completed application form to the relevant roads office.
