Temporary Prohibition of Traffic Order

Order number: 56, 2022

Tilbury Christmas Lights

Whereas application has been made to the Borough Council of Thurrock for the temporary closure of the road described below, on the occasion of the Tilbury Christmas Lights on Friday 2 December 2022 as the roads are likely to be thronged or liable to be obstructed.

And whereas the said Borough Council is satisfied that the closure of the highways so described is necessary as the ordinary day to day use of the highway is likely to be obstructed or dislocated by a substantial number of persons.

And whereas the Police have raised no objection to the making of this Order provided that appropriate arrangements are made to exclude vehicles from the roads affected by this Order other than those vehicles associated with the event and that suitable closure notices are displayed.

Now therefore the Borough Council of Thurrock in pursuance of the powers conferred by Section 21 of the Town Police Clauses Act 1847 and of all other enabling powers hereby makes the following Order:

1. Civic Square from its junctions with Kelvin Road round to Arkwright Road, Tilbury including Calcutta Road up to its junction with Montreal Road and St. Chads Road shall be temporarily closed in order to facilitate the Tilbury Christmas Lights.
2. The Order will come into force between the hours of 2pm and 10pm on Friday 2 December 2022.
