Austroads is seeking industry consultation on its draft, Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management Part 9: Processes and Procedures paper.
Austroads’ Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management is being developed as part of the strategic priority project Safety at Road Worksites.
According to an Austroads statement, member authorities intend to establish a 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 statement reads.
“It has been developed based on best practice temporary traffic management in Australia and New Zealand, to assist road authorities to meet their existing legislative responsibilities for workplace and public safety.”
Part 9 details processes and procedures relating to jurisdictional management of temporary traffic management during roadworks.
“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 statement reads.
The industry comment period closes on Wednesday 17 July 2019.
