GKTM produce plans for both long and short term schemes. From simple lane closures to multiphase crossover schemes, our traffic management plans ensure safety and efficiency for site personnel, in addition to motorists and the general public. The type of TM plan that we provide will depend on whether the roadworks are Type A, B or C.
Type C Roadworks
These roadworks are of a short duration and involve the use of one or two vehicles. For instance, maintenance to utilities or street furniture. When the expected traffic flow is less than the available carriageway capacity or the works do not reduce the carriageway width significantly.
Furthermore, Type C Works can be generic drawings which are sufficient for crews who are suitably qualified and experienced to set up TM. GKTM have sets of generic drawings for all Type C Set Ups. Consequently clients can buy these ‘off the shelf’.
Type B Roadworks
Part-time roadworks that remain in operation when the expected traffic flow is less than the available carriageway capacity.
These traffic management plans relate to common scenarios and setups. We add basic project information to TM generic drawings and adapt them to site specific conditions. The turn around on these drawings can be fairly quick. However, we would ask that 1 weeks notice be given to enable us to carry out a site survey beforehand.
Type A Roadworks
Full-time roadworks that remain in operation in all traffic flows and all visibility conditions. This type of works typically includes temporary traffic measures that will remain in position for a duration in excess of 24hrs
Our traffic management drawings for type A roadworks are site specific, drawn to scale and show project information in greater detail of project information. Please note, we receive a large number of requests for this type of drawing. To ensure we give the best service, we would ask for a minimum of 2 weeks notice.
