Road closures for utility works

If you are a utilities company and need a road closure for your works to proceed, you must get a temporary traffic order. It takes four to six weeks to get this.

You need to complete one of the following forms:

Play Streets 

Neighbours can agree to temporarily close their street to traffic to help kids move more and have fun in a safe environment. 

If you’d like a Play Street in your local area in Greenwich:

  1. First, contact play-streets@royalgreenwich.gov.uk to find out if your street is eligible (i.e. residential with no bus route).
  2. Once it is confirmed your street is eligible, talk to your neighbours about having a Play Street.
  3. Build up support for a Play Street. We recommend you have the support of five residents on your street. Download a letter template to give to your neighbours.
  4. Have your five neighbours sign in support of Play Streets.
  5. Submit the application form and your five supporting signatures.
