The Department for Transport, supported by GeoPlace, the British Parking Association and Ordnance Survey, conducted an award winning discovery into the processes by which Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) are made, and how TRO data is made available and used across the country.
GeoPlace engaged widely with experts and with people and organisations who required TROs. The project had input from over 200 individuals across 90+ organisations and over 3000 road users.
The aim was to understand who is reliant on TROs, how the process works for them and how we might improve it in the future. We worked with local highways authorities to understand how they create TROs and manage their TRO data, and released a number of surveys to understand:
- the costs incurred by local authorities to create Permanent Orders and Temporary Orders
- the maturity of TRO Digitisation associated with features typically relating to TROs
- the needs of individuals/organisations for data typically associated with TROs
