The one-day course is designed for local authority officers and other practitioners who create new traffic regulation orders or have a professional interest in the use of orders as a tool for implementing effective traffic management schemes. The course is intended primarily for those officers who are fairly new to the role of writing TROs, as well as other staff, such as highway engineers, who want to have some background knowledge of how TROs can help them to achieve their traffic management objectives.
Other organisations, such as event organisers and temporary traffic management providers would also find the course beneficial.
Local authority officers with more experience of TROs would also find this course valuable as a refresher on the procedural requirements of the TRO-making process.
The aim of the one-day course is to explain the legal basis and statutory procedures for making traffic regulation orders and other types of orders relating to traffic management. The course also discusses those issues that frequently give rise to challenges to orders or subsequent problems with enforcement.
