Temporary traffic signals licence
You need a licence to place temporary signals on the highway - which includes stop and go boards.
You need to have either booked the road space or have a section 50 licence agreed before applying for this licence.
Apply for a licence to place temporary signals
Once your road space booking or section 50 licence is approved, we'll give you a reference number to include on your temporary signal application.
You must provide traffic management drawings for multi-way signal configurations (which includes 2-way signals and a pedestrian crossing configuration) as part of your application.
Minimum expectations for drawings are:
- OS drawing with licence number
- at an appropriate scale with the scale clearly displayed
- location of where the signal heads are going to be placed
- the location and extent of the work zone
You don't need to provide a drawing for two-way signal configurations unless we ask for one.
