Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

If you wish to use public traffic areas for construction work or events, you must apply for a permit from the local road traffic authority.

You must obtain a permit from the local road traffic authority for every measure in which you use and restrict the public traffic area.
Such measures include

  • Road construction measures
  • the erection of scaffolding or the storage of building materials
  • removals
  • events

You may only start the measures once you have been granted permission.

You are responsible for informing the public about the measure.

With the permit, the competent authority will specify in a traffic order

  • how you must cordon off and mark the work site,
  • whether and how you must restrict, direct and regulate traffic and
  • how you must mark any detour routes.

On the one hand, these requirements ensure the safety of workers and road users. On the other hand, they ensure that traffic is not impaired more than necessary.

You need a traffic order not only when a lane is completely or partially closed. It is also necessary if the work only affects cycle paths or footpaths.

If the requested traffic restriction is a work site, a site manager must be appointed.

If the measure lasts longer than the requested period, you must apply for an extension of the measure before the approved period expires.

In the event of an emergency, please contact the relevant police station directly.
