Austroads has produced a mapping document to help stakeholders locate content from Standards Australia’s revised AS1742.3 (2009): Manual of uniform traffic control devices Traffic control for works on roads.
Some content was transferred to the updated Standard AS1742.3 (2019), while guidance material was incorporated in the Austroads Guide to Temporary Traffic Management (AGTTM) released in December 2019. Some of this material was expanded based on up-to-date input from Austroads member organisations and industry.
“This document, Mapping Comparison: Guide to Temporary Traffic Management and Australian Standard 1742.3 (2009), will save our stakeholders time and frustration by showing them where guidance in the previous version of the Standard was transferred to,” said Richard Delplace, Austroads Program Manager Network.
“Tables help readers find out whether clauses and sections of the old Standard have been transferred to the new Standard or the AGTTM and which Part and Section of the new standard or AGTTM they have been added to. There is also commentary to guide readers on updated, revised or expanded content that has changed materially.”
The document has been provided in response to stakeholder requests for clarification of information.
