Temporary Traffic Restrictions
A temporary traffic restriction is a legal order made by us under the Road Traffic (Temporary Restrictions) Act 1991.
Temporary traffic restrictions could involve closing a road to traffic, amending the parking restrictions in a road, making a road which is normally one way open to two way traffic flow or imposing a one way restriction on a road that normally accommodates two way traffic flow. Restrictions can be placed on a road, cycle lane or footpath.
Our Network Management Team process all applications for temporary traffic restrictions in Camden except those that are required on a Red Route.
We will provide a diversionary route for traffic being affected by the operation. We make orders for temporary traffic restrictions to facilitate street works, construction works and in some cases for a street party/festival.
