Traffic Management is the safe management of vehicle traffic movements through and around sites where work is being undertaken within the road reserve. It also involves temporary alterations to traffic movements as required for special purpose events.
It requires safe and consistent traffic management practice at work sites. It requires the safe and appropriate use of road signs, signals and other devices that may be required to protect road users, including motorists, pedestrians, cyclists and emergency vehicles. Management of work on roads requires consideration of all road user needs and obligations.
Traffic Management applies to work within road reserves by Government contract, private contractors and other statutory bodies. Anybody who wants to work on a road needs the skills and knowledge to do it safely.
