Traffic Management Plans

Customised Traffic Management Plans

At Commonsense Traffic Management, we have extensive experience in the traffic control and traffic management industry. We provide traffic management and safety consultancy services to a wide range of clients, both big and small.

A Traffic Management Plan (TMP) report assesses traffic impacts associated with development construction on the local road network. It is also a requirement for Special Events or Full Road Closures.

The plan must adhere to the Local Council Standard Requirements and describe the proposed construction works, the traffic impacts on the local area and how these impacts are addressed.

Construction Traffic Management Plans and Traffic Guidance Schemes may be required by:

  • Development Applications (DA)
  • Developers
  • Property Owners
  • Builders
  • Owner Builders
  • Organisations/Businesses with traffic problems
  • Traffic Control Activities such as roadworks, deliveries of bulk goods and site access.

What are the steps in creating a Traffic Management Plan?

When creating a Traffic Management Plan, there are a lot of things to consider

  • The scope of works of the construction project or the activity associated with a particular event
  • The impact the Construction Project or special event is likely to have on the road network is determined
  • Critical requirements are identified in the local council DA Consent or event planning requirements.
  • The daily traffic flows are identified (this is needed to determine the signage type and size) and whether the roadway is an RMS, Local Government-, or privately controlled asset.
  • Local conditions such as the road speed, location of speed limit signs, any conflicting signage requiring concealment, roadway condition and usage, schools, bus stops, driveways, emergency services etc. are identified
  • A Traffic Management Plan specifically designed for your worksite and in compliance with all identified conditions is then created.

Why do I need a Swept Path Diagram?

  • Local Councils or Roads Authorities will ask for a Swept Path Diagram for most Development Applications where there is a need to assess the car park design.
