THE PROCESS of introducing new parking limits and one-way systems is set to be made faster.

West Sussex County Council is aiming to increase the number of Traffic Regulation Orders it delivers each year.

TROs are legal orders which road users have to obey, such as one-way systems, speed limits and waiting restrictions.

Officers are working on plans to accelerate the time taken to approve a TRO.

Councillor Pieter Montyn, in charge of transport at West Sussex, said: ‘Under the old system, in some cases it has taken several years for TROs to be enacted.

‘We are looking at staff resources and working on ways to revise this process.’
