Traffic Force can offer a comprehensive range of Traffic Management Plans (TMPs) and reports to meet all demands of clients and road authority bodies. We work closely and liaise with local and government authorities for a smooth transition from planning to construction.
Traffic Management Plans or commonly referred to as TMPs for roadwork sites provide a means of planning and implementing how all likely road users will be safely and efficiently guided through or past a roadworks site and ensure the network performance is not unduly impacted, for the duration of the works. TMPs are prepared in advance of the works being conducted and are generally subject to auditing before and after implementation.
Traffic Management is the management of occupational safety and network performance risks associated with work activities undertaken in a traffic environment. In Western Australia (WA) TMPs are prepared and implemented by those who have gained relevant accreditation under the Main Roads Western Australia (MRWA)'s training programs. All Traffic Force planners are fully accredited 'Advanced Worksite Traffic Managers'. TMPs designed are based on the requirements of the current MRWA Traffic Management Code of Practice. The Code of Practice supplements the Australian Standards AS 1742.3, however it also outlines additional requirements and variations from AS1742.3 which are applied in WA.
As each work location / site is unique, individual TMPs are required for each site and may also be required for individual work activity during the term of the works. It needs to be remembered that the TMP is a Risk Management Plan and consists of:
- Documentation of the risk assessment for the project and the procedures and practices that will be utilized to manage the risk exposure; and
- Traffic control diagram outlining signage and device placement which are commonly used.
Our team can also assist with project communication requirements such as letter drop of the works area, variable message board notification prior to works and / or newspaper / radio station advertising.
