The Austroads Guide to Temporary Traffic Management: Part 8, Section 2 details a road categorisation system for the purpose of applying temporary traffic management practices.
These categories determine a number of requirements under the guide including temporary traffic management design practices and training.
The Department of State Growth (the Department) has worked with all Tasmanian Councils to collect road category information for Local Government roads. This information has been collated for industry use.
Most roads on the Tasmanian road network fall under the Category 1 criteria.
Although the classification of road categories has been outlined in the link below, the development of traffic management plans and traffic guidance schemes should be subject to a risk assessment, relevant to the conditions of the site, and any clarification can be sought from the Department, or the relevant Local Government area.
A list of Tasmanian state and local roads that fall outside the Category 1 criteria can be accessed by clicking on the link below.
