Traffic management orders (TMOs) are legal documents that help manage traffic and parking.
TMOs control things like speed limits, one-way streets and yellow lines.

- speed and movement restrictions – known as ‘moving restrictions’

When we propose a new permanent or experimental TMO, you have a chance to let us know if you agree with it or not.
What is not controlled by TMOs
TMOs are not needed for:

- yellow box junctions
- bus stops
- road humps
- pedestrian crossings
How we advertise TMOs
We must advertise each TMO.
We do this by publishing a notice in a local newspaper.
We may also:
- publish the notice in the London Gazette
- put notices on lamp posts in the street where the TMO is proposed
