Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management Part 10: Sample Layouts
  • Publication no: COP-MAY19
  • Published: 16 May 2019

Austroads has released Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management Part 10: Sample Layouts 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.

Part 10: Sample Layouts has been developed to provide support to the other parts of ACoPTTM to assist Traffic Management Designers in the interpretation of the various requirements of this ACoPTTM.

The industry comment period closes on Thursday 13 June 2019.

Comments must be submitted using the document review template (Word doc). Please submit your comments on the WORD template and save your organisation 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 guidance material in this draft document is based on existing practices and amended to reflect the latest feedback from the Working Group consisting of Austroads member agencies and selected industry bodies.

The guides are 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.

If you have any queries with regards to this industry consultation, please send an email to the Austroads Safety at Road Worksites Project Manager Dan Sullivan at

Following the industry consultation phase, the guide is intended to be finalised and released later this year.
