Temporary traffic signals on the highway

Use our online form if you want to apply for temporary traffic lights that may be used for road works or traffic management.

Note: There are three embargo periods operated across Shropshire market towns during which time only emergency works are permitted. Dates fall as follows:

  • Christmas - between the second Monday in November and the Monday following the first week in January.
  • Good Friday - for ten days (usually in March)
  • Flower show – 1 week in August

Please consult our Planning Department to establish whether or not planning permission is required for the works prior to completing your application.
