What is a Traffic Management Plan?
A traffic management plan details what traffic control measuresare required for scenarios where normal vehicle and pedestrian traffic flow is interrupted i.e. Construction projects, roadworks, road maintenance.
GKTM produce plans for both long and short term schemes. A traffic management plan can identify any particular hazards to the road worker or road user, during the installation, operation and removal of the traffic management and, by using these guidelines, minimise the risks. A plan includes detailed instructions for the following:
- Access to roadworks or construction site
- Traffic Management Signage
- Routing of Construction Traffic
- Road Closures
- Speed Limits
- Road Cleaning
- Road Condition
- Details of Working Hours and Days
- Details of Emergency Plan
- Traffic Management diagram / drawing
- Traffic Management implementation
- Cessation of traffic management plan
- Cleanup / Removal of works
Traffic Management Drawings
The development of a traffic management plan begins with quality and detailed traffic management drawings. For Type C roadworks, the drawings can be generic drawings that and experienced crew can follow. Customers can buy these drawings ‘off the shelf’. For more complex scenarios we will work with the client to produce the required drawings.
