How do I apply for a temporary road closure?

Temporary Traffic Lights
If you need to use temporary traffic lights to carry out works in the highway, you must apply to us for approval. There is no charge for this. However there is a charge if you need us to turn off a permanent set of traffic lights, or the lights at a pedestrian crossing.
(For multiway traffic lights a detailed plan must be provided clearly showing the distance between the signal heads and red/green timings of the signals during works)
If you need to install a lane closure to carry out works in the highway, you must apply to us for approval. There is no charge for this but a detailed plan is needed
