Traffic management guidance updated with Safe System content

Thursday, 7 March 2019

Austroads has released updated editions of six Parts of the Guide to Traffic Management (AGTM) following a Safe System review.

The AGTM has 13 Parts and provides comprehensive traffic management guidance for Australian and New Zealand practitioners involved in traffic engineering, road design and road safety.

In January, Austroads released the report Embedding Safe System in the Guide to Traffic Management. The new and revised content recommended in this report for AGTM Parts 1, 5, 7, 9, 10 and 12 has been incorporated into the series.

The publication of the six updated editions addresses the priority gaps identified in the review and presents an opportunity to better integrate Safe System into traffic engineering and management activities.

Guide to Traffic Management Part 6: Intersections, Interchanges and Crossings is also currently under review and is expected to be published with new safe system content by April.

Updated editions of the following Parts of Guide to Traffic Management are now available:

Guide to Traffic Management Part 1: Introduction to Traffic Management

Guide to Traffic Management Part 5: Road Management

Guide to Traffic Management Part 7: Traffic Management in Activity Centres

Guide to Traffic Management Part 9: Traffic Operations

Guide to Traffic Management Part 10: Traffic Control and Communication Devices

Guide to Traffic Management Part 12: Traffic Impacts of Developments
