Traffic Management Plan


What is a Traffic Management Plan?
A Traffic Management plan should be prepared for all works on a road, footpath or cycle track. Too often Companies are engaged in works which they consider being routine maintenances on footpaths, cycle tracks and even roadways without a traffic management plan and they only become aware of this onus following an accident/incident or claim of some sort against their organisation.

Why do you need a Traffic Managemant Plan?
Regulation 97 of the 2006 Regulations specifically deals with works on roads, footpaths and cycle tracks and puts the following onus amongst others on contractors to ensure:

  • Adequate guarding and lighting is provided, & traffic signs are placed & maintained, & where necessary operated, as reasonably required for the safe guidance or direction of persons, having regard, in particular, to the needs of people with disabilities;
  • There is on site, at all times when the works are in progress, at least one person with a valid Signing, Lighting and Guarding CSCS card.

How can we help?
Our approach to compiling a Traffic Management plan involves a site visit to the road in question in order for a trained traffic management expert to determine type and/or number of signs, cones, taper rates, longitudinal & lateral safety zones etc required which is governed by Traffic counts, road classification, speed limits, weather, road width and road shape.
Once the required information is obtained a traffic management schematic is produced by our Consultant and presented to the Client. We understand that there may be short notice in relation to the requirement for traffic management plans due to emergency requirements to fix leaking water mains etc and are always flexible to meet our Clients needs.

We also offer Signing, Lighting and Guarding  and Health and Safety at Roadworks training courses
