Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations make amendments to regulation 13 of the Street Works (Registers, Notices, Directions and Designations) Regulations 1992 (S.I. 1992/2985), which sets out the criteria for designating streets as traffic-sensitive pursuant to section 64 of the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991.
Paragraph (1)(a) of regulation 13 is amended to refer to road traffic regulation orders in Greater London made pursuant to section 6 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 and it is made clear that the prohibition or restrictions of the parking of vehicles referred to in that paragraph must be for at least one hour during the hours specified.
New paragraphs (1)(d) and (dd) are substituted to enable a street authority in Greater London to designate a street as traffic-sensitive where it is a priority route (within the meaning of the Road Traffic Act 1991) or in the opinion of the Traffic Director for London is one which is likely to be affected by a priority route, whether or not waiting prohibitions or restrictions have been imposed.
