Consultancy and Traffic Management Plans
All TMPs (Traffic Management Plans) submitted for approval to the Local Roading Authority must be prepared by a Waka Kotahi (NZTA) Approved TTM Planner. Currently Men at Work has seven qualified TTM Planners working in Auckland, Wellington, Marlborough and Canterbury regions.
Currently, once a Traffic Management Plan has been designed and submitted, the Local Roading Authority will take a minimum of five working days to approve the plan.
Traffic management Plans are required:
If you have a workplace with a high volume of traffic, a traffic management plan can help you communicate how you are managing traffic risks in your workplace.
A traffic management plan may include details of:
The desired flow of pedestrian and vehicle movements.
The expected frequency of interaction of vehicles and pedestrians.
Illustrations of the layout of barriers, walkways, signs and general arrangements to warn and guide traffic around, past, or through a work site or temporary hazard.
How short term, mobile work and complex traffic situations will be managed.
A traffic management plan could also set out:
Responsibilities of people managing traffic in the workplace.
Responsibilities of people expected to interact with traffic in the workplace, and instructions or procedures for controlling traffic including in an emergency.
Traffic Management Plans (TMPs) may be simple and take a few hours to prepare, or they may take weeks to prepare in consultation with experienced Temporary Traffic Management Technicians.
