Bagging of permanent traffic signals

If temporary traffic management impacts permanent signals and they are required to be switched off and bagged, activity promoters need to apply to Siemens.

You will need to:

  • have a permit granted first and quote the granted permit reference number
  • give at least 10 working days' notice for planned activities where possible. If less notice is given, there is no guarantee an application will be approved.
  • apply without delay following the start of immediate activities

An activity promoter must not under any circumstances deliberately cut power, switch off or bag up permanent signals themselves. In the event of a loss of power to permanent signals through an unforeseen fault or accident, report it to Dorset Highways immediately.

When permanent signals are taken out of use by an activity, particularly controlled pedestrian crossings, a temporary controlled equivalent must be provided within the traffic management set up, unless otherwise agreed in writing by Dorset Highways.
