Transport Scotland is putting a clearway temporary traffic regulation order (TTRO) in place for Glenfinnan this summer to address inconsiderate parking on the A830 trunk road within the village.

The TTRO for a clearway – also known as a No Stopping Order – will run from the end of this week until the end of October 2021, but it has been confirmed Transport Scotland has agreed the TTRO should be made permanent (PTRO).

The promotion of a PTRO is a longer process than the promotion of a TTRO. On average, the promotion of a PTRO takes up to a year. Where there are objections, it can take longer than a year.

The approach being taken by Transport Scotland is to put a Clearway TTRO in place for Glenfinnan this summer, while working on the promotion of a PTRO Clearway Order which will hopefully be put in place by summer 2022.
