Roadworks and maintenance of services

You will need to apply to Essex County Council for a temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO) if you need to temporarily close a road for:

  • planned roadworks
  • installation of, or maintenance works to, services such as gas, electricity or water
  • building works being carried out on or near the road
  • short-term road closures due to emergencies, such as repairs to a burst water main or gas leak
