Issue details

Adoption of enforcement powers under part 6 of the Traffic Management Act

Purpose of Report: The report will inform the Executive of the new enforcement powers for Local Authorities under part 6 of the Traffic Management Act 2004.

This includes banned turns, access restrictions and yellow box junctions.

The Executive will be asked to:
- Consider and make a decision to apply to the Department for Transport to take on the responsibilities for enforcement of part 6 of the Traffic Management Act 2004.
- Consider and make a decision to explore undertaking a pilot on selected powers (including finance model) in discrete locations to ensure the public are engaged, are aware of the implications and technology and enforcement methodology. Delegate to the Executive Member for Transport to agree the detail of the pilot;
