If a highway to be adopted already has road humps does the highway authority need to do a statutory consultation in relation to those humps on adoption as a highway maintainable at public expense?

Traffic order on private road

Q&A: Can a traffic regulation order be applied to a private road? may be helpful.

It suggests that the traffic authority for a road outside of Greater London may make a traffic regulation order (TRO). See section 1 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 (RTRA 1984). Road is defined by RTRA 1984, s 142 (in England and Wales) as any length of highway or any other road to which the public has access and includes bridges over which a road passes.

For further information on the process of obtaining TRO, see Practice Note: Road traffic—order procedure and notices and commentary: Transport and traffic management:
