Transport (Scotland) Act 2001

Section 42 Traffic regulation conditions to reduce or limit noise or air pollution

70.This section extends the powers of the traffic commissioner to impose traffic regulation conditions on local bus services under section 7 of the Transport Act 1985. Previously, these powers permitted the traffic commissioner, at the request of local authorities, to impose restrictions on routes and stopping places in the interests of preventing danger to road users or reducing severe traffic congestion. This section enables the traffic commissioner to do so for the additional purposes of reducing or limiting noise or air pollution.
