1. Transport for London hereby gives notice, that it has made the above-named experimental Order under sections 9 and 10 of the Traffic Regulation Act 1984, on 14 March 2002. The Order comes into effect on 21 March 2002, and can remain in force for up to 18 months.
2. The general nature and effect of the Order is to introduce Red Route controls in certain lengths of Millbank, Victoria Embankment and Westminster Bridge in the City of Westminster. This Order includes provisions for:

“double red line controls” prohibiting stopping at any time at locations where stationary vehicles will cause danger or congestion;
“single red line controls” prohibiting stopping between 8.00 am and 7.00 pm on Mondays to Saturdays inclusive at locations where stationary vehicles will cause danger or congestion during busy day time periods;
an area marked on the carriageway which is for the use of buses for picking up and setting down passengers;
areas marked on the carriageway which are for the use of loading and for unloading vehicles;
exemptions to the Red Route controls are few but do allow for boarding and alighting from buses, taxis and disabled passengers from vehicles displaying an Orange Badge.

3. While the Order is in force Transport for London, or any person authorised by them, may modify or suspend the Order or any provisions in it if it appears essential to do so for certain purposes.
4. In due course Transport for London will be considering whether or not the provisions of the Order should be continued in force indefinitely. Within the period of 6 months from the coming into force of the Order, or if the Order is subsequently varied by another Order or modified, from the coming into force of that variation or modification (whichever is the latest), any person may object to the making of an Order to continue indefinitely those provisions. Any such objection must be made in writing, giving the grounds on which it is made, and sent to Transport for London, Windsor House, 50 Victoria Street, London SW1H 0TL, quoting Ref SS/AD/SF-TO.GLA/2002/186. Any objection may be communicated to other persons who may be affected.
5. A copy of the Order, a statement of Transport for London’s reasons for the proposals and for proceeding by way of experiment, a map indicating the location and effect of the Order and copies of any Order revoked, suspended or varied by the Order can be inspected during normal office hours at the offices of:

Transport for London, Street Management, Statutory Functions, Traffic Orders, 1st Floor Annexe, 25 Eccleston Place, London SW1W 9NF; and

6. The documents will be available for inspection during the period within which objections can be made in accordance with paragraph 3 above.
7. Any person desiring to question the validity of the Order or of any provision contained in it on the grounds that it is not within the relevant powers or that any of the relevant requirements have not been complied with in relation to the Order may, within 6 weeks of the date on which the Order was made, make application for the purpose to the High Court.
