Austroads Guide to Temporary Traffic Management - Tasmanian Implementation
The Austroads Guide to Temporary Traffic Management was launched on 11 December 2019.
As of 1 July, 2020 the Austroads Guide to Temporary Traffic Management will be the approved Guidance for Traffic Management in Tasmania.
To support industry in the implementation of the Guide, the Department, in conjunction with the Traffic Management Association Australia (TMAA) and the Civil Contractors Federation Tasmania (CCF TAS) have organised Dr Dan Sullivan (Austroads Project Manager for the Guide) to attend industry briefings in Launceston and Hobart in February.

The Austroads Board have been working on a project to refine traffic management at road works, by developing and simplifying guidance documents, and improving training and consistency across Australia. This has included a review and update of the current Australian Standard 1742.3 which was launched on 11 December 2019.
The Austroads Board have updated the standard to improve the ability of road agencies, contractors, traffic management practitioners and industry to meet their Work Health and Safety (WH&S) requirements, and achieve better safety outcomes at road works sites.
This project aims to standardise the approach to temporary traffic management across Australia and in New Zealand.
