Introduction


This short course provides the skills and knowledge required for individuals responsible for developing traffic management plans and traffic guidance schemes to perform a preliminary risk assessment of a temporary traffic management site and select, modify and design traffic management plans and traffic guidance schemes.
This course applies to those individuals responsible for developing traffic management plans and traffic guidance schemes.
This course does not qualify a participant to control traffic with a stop-slow bat or boom gate‚ or set up work with traffic control plans.

  • Collate traffic volume data, type and class of vehicles
  • Determine lane capacity, road network performance and lane closure restrictions
  • Identify impacts from any concurrent or adjacent works
  • Identify times and dates of any planned public events that may result in increased or redistributed traffic patterns
  • Identify affected stakeholders and type of notification required and prepare notifications
  • Calculate costings for TMP development and implementation
