Temporary road closures
If works on the highway, or some large deliveries or events, require the closure of a road, the highway authority must issue a temporary traffic regulation order. These events are likely to be more disruptive to traffic so they require higher levels of coordination and communication. Herefordshire Council is the highway authority for the majority of the county's roads. This is except for the trunk roads and motorways (A49T, A40T (Ross-on-Wye to Monmouth) and the M50), which are managed by Highways England.
To apply for a temporary road closure, please complete the temporary road closure application form. Please give as much notice as possible. This will allow us to properly assess your application and coordinate your closure with any others.
Road closure for event or street party
If your event requires partial or complete closure of a road, you need to apply in advance to our contractor using the application for a temporary road closure form and include the reason for the road closure.
Please give as much notice as possible. This will allow us to properly assess your application and coordinate your closure with any others.
