Trunk Road Orders are published as local Scottish Statutory Instruments (SSIs). Trunk road improvement schemes require the drafting and publication of statutory Trunk Road, Side Roads and Compulsory Purchase Orders. These are open to objection. Should an objection from a Statutory Consultee be unresolved this may lead to a Public Local Inquiry.
The procedure for promoting road Orders is set out in the Roads (Scotland) Act 1984 and for draft CPOs in The Compulsory Purchase of Land (Scotland) Regulations 2003.
Traffic Regulation Orders involve both Temporary (TTROs) and Permanent (PTROs) Traffic Regulation Orders. These are promoted under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 to either restrict or prohibit traffic on trunk roads and motorways for safety reasons.
They are mainly required in connection with maintenance, repair and construction works. They are not open to objection although certain statutory procedures need to be followed as set out in the regulations relating to the TTROs.
