The majority of traffic management used on the roads today must be introduced by the making of a Traffic Management Order (TMO). Most Traffic Management Orders are concerned with prescribing or restricting vehicle movements. Therefore, Traffic Management Orders are not made for traffic calming schemes, which are mainly intended to physically reduce vehicle speed, or for the provision of pedestrian facilities.
By law, we are required to publish notices in a local newspaper which advertise the proposal and effects of the TMO’s. The notices detail permanent TMOs that the council proposes to make and explain how and by what date objections may be made.
