Requesting new road markings or traffic signs
We are responsible for the new road markings and traffic signs on the public highway.
Road markings can be advisory for example-
- keep clear markings
- enforceable such as -
- yellow lines
- box junctions
- stop lines
- parking bays
Traffic signs can be enforceable such as -
- no entry
- no waiting
- speed limit signs and so on
- give warnings, information or directions
To request any new road markings or signs please complete the form below -
Some new markings or signs will require a Traffic Regulation Order being made before they can be installed.
The request must first be advertised in the local newspaper and on site to allow anyone to object. Any objections are heard by the relevant area committee. If the committee overrules the objections then the Traffic Regulation Order is made and the proposals installed.
We will remove any illegal signs. We also maintain -
- road markings
- signals and signs on the public highway which have been-
- faulty or have become faded.

Traffic signal defects
All permanent traffic signals within the City boundary are operated and maintained by us, except for the following that are maintained by Highways England -

Defects to temporary traffic signals are not usually our responsibility. If you need to report a defect to a temporary traffic signal, this would need to be passed onto the contractor who is carrying out the works.
You can check the one.network system to find out which contractor this needs to be reported to.
If the one.network system does state that the temporary lights are our responsibility, please report this as well as any other faulty traffic signals which are operated and maintained by us, via the form below.
