holding answer 18 January 2011

There are no current proposals to change national regulations or guidance on procedures for effecting road closures, as they apply in England. However, I am examining some relevant issues in the context of our Traffic Signs Policy Review, and the Government's policies for localism and decentralisation. Any final decisions on regulatory changes will be made with reference to impact assessments.

It is for the Welsh Assembly Government to consider the procedures that apply in Wales.
