Background

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.
