Traffic Management Act 2004: overview

The Traffic Management Act gives councils powers and responsibilities to make traffic move more freely.

The Traffic Management Act 2004 (TMA) was introduced to tackle congestion and disruption on the road network. The TMA places a duty on local traffic authorities to make sure that traffic can move freely and quickly on their roads and on the roads of nearby authorities. The TMA gives councils more tools to manage parking policies, coordinate street works and enforce some moving traffic offences.
