Closures and diversions Occasionally, works on or near the highway may require a road to be either temporarily closed or diverted. Such closures require a Traffic Regulation Order which is arranged by the Council. View all current Traffic Regulation Orders in Trafford. How to apply for a Traffic Regulation Order To apply you will need to complete a temporary Traffic Regulation Order request. The person or organisation requesting the Order will need to meet the costs involved with making the Order and any necessary signing. A minimum of six weeks notice must be given to allow for any legal and consultative process to be carried out.
