Have your say on Temporary Traffic Management


Wednesday, 3 July 2019

Austroads' Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management is being developed as part of the strategic priority project Safety at Road Worksites (Project BN2019). The intent of Austroads member authorities is to establish the nationally preferred and harmonised approach for undertaking temporary traffic management for works on roads.

The Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management (CoPTTM) will be an eleven-part series that steps traffic control professionals through all of the processes, procedures and technical information required to develop, write, implement and manage traffic management requirements for work sites. 

Austroads has released the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management Part 9: Processes and Procedures, for industry consultation.

Part 9 details the processes and procedures relating to jurisdictional management of temporary traffic management at roadworks. The information included covers:

  • categories of temporary traffic management
  • powers, roles and responsibilities
  • training
  • standard forms and descriptions.

It provides guidance to road authorities, road infrastructure managers, any party conducting works on or near a road, and all persons involved in planning, designing, implementing, managing and completing temporary traffic management works.

The industry comment period closes on Wednesday 17 July 2019.

If you have any queries regarding this industry consultation, please email the Austroads Safety at Road Worksites Project Manager Dan Sullivan.
