Tasmanian Guide to Traffic Control for Works on Roads
Traffic control at work sites is provided to maintain a safe workplace for workers and safely guide road users through work sites.
It is essential for safety that the credibility of traffic control at worksites is maintained.
This can be achieved by making sure that arrangements are as simple and predictable as possible, that devices are correctly installed, and that the measures applied match the road environment and work activities.
Traffic Management practices in Tasmania must be conducted in accordance with a number of standards and guides.
Traffic control at work sites in Tasmania must be designed and installed in accordance with the relevant Australian Standard – AS 1742.3 (2019) and Austroads Guide to Temporary Traffic Management (AGTTM).
The Department of State Growth has created a guide to Traffic Control for Works on Roads.
This contains information regarding authority, training requirements, and transition arrangements relating to the Austroads Safer Outcomes at Road Worksites project.
