Austroads has released Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management Part 7: Field Staff – Implementation and Operation, for industry consultation.
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 establish the nationally preferred and harmonised approach for undertaking temporary traffic management for works on roads.
The 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.
The new Code will, once completed, provide comprehensive national guidance for all practitioners operating in Temporary Traffic Management.
The draft of Part 7 is available here, and comments should be included on the document review template provided in the supporting documents tab. Please submit your comments on the original Word template and include your organisation's name in the file name. Comments provided on any other format may not be considered. Please do not provide PDF versions of the comment template
The industry comment period closes on Thursday 14 March 2019.
The guidance material in this draft document is based on existing practices and amended to reflect the latest feedback from the project Working Group consisting of Austroads member authorities and selected industry bodies.
The Code is intended to replace the relevant material currently contained in Australian Standard AS1742.3 and associated State and Territory documents. The material is also intended to reflect practices to be applied in New Zealand but due to differences in signage practices may require additional supporting documentation in New Zealand.
