TRO Discovery Project: Final two surveys regarding digitisation and data requirements

Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO) or Traffic Management Orders (TMO) in London are a legal instrument and local authorities create them to regulate and implement changes on the road network, from changing features like signs and speed limits to allowing temporary changes for special events and roadworks.

We're part of the TRO Discovery Project, a unique collaboration with the Department for Transport (DfT) GeoPlace and Ordnance Survey  to help Local Authorities make their TROs fully digital and machine-readable.

The project team have had engagement from over 300 organisations with an interest in the TRO Process and/or TRO Data as part of the initial consultation. Over the last month, we’ve been reaching out to numerous organisations, some of which took part in the original consultation, in order to delve deeper and explore user needs. The research continues into March and the project team will have carried out in-depth interviews with over 100 different organisations when this aspect of the TRO Discovery finishes.

As part of the user research we have launched two final surveys:

We need to understand to what extent the features associated with TROs and Temporary TROs have been digitised. Please visit this page and complete the steps to submit your information and complete the survey by Friday 5th April.

And to help create a draft data model we need to understand to what extent the features associated with TROs and Temporary TROs are required by industry in the form of data.

  • What data do you need
  • Why do you need it
  • Is there any specific attribution required
  • Are there quality measures that should be considered
  • What are the spatial requirements?

Please visit this page and follow the step to submit your information and complete the survey by Friday 5th April.
