Current Temporary Rights of Way Closures

Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders (TTRO) are legal orders made by Bedford Borough Council under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. They are used to close public Rights of Way when works are due to take place on or near their line and if there is a likely danger to users or following serious damage to the surface. There are two types of orders, emergency notices that last up to 21 days or temporary orders which last up to 6 months with an option to extend further through the Secretary of State.

If  you need to apply for a closure please complete the application form  (pdf 22kb, opens in new window)

Traffic Regulation Orders
