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.

  • Select and modify a TGS/TMP based on risk assessment, statutory and regulatory requirements, standards, road authority requirements and project brief
  • Draw up a TGS/TMP to recognise other graphical representations such as pedestrian movement plans, vehicle movement plans, and notification of authorities
  • Determine the recommended spacing between signs and traffic control devices in line with standards; measure width of trafficable surface; calculate edge clearances to barriers, cones and clearance to work personnel
  • Incorporate environmental management plans
  • Conduct an onsite check and inspection of the plan and to identify any unexpected hazards/risks
  • Identify approvals required; identify approval agencies, types of approvals for roadway access, railway reserve access, authority to install signs on roads, variation to standards
  • Understand speed, environment, type and class of vehicles, traffic density, sight lines, environmental condition, weather patterns and surface type
  • Monitor and interpret control systems to apply to the drawing, selection and design.
  • Use approved methods and follow recognised local legislation
  • Use the site/location assessment, distinguish topographical landmarks and carry out authorised risk control
  • 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
