Temporary traffic management is the process or method of managing road users, including vehicles and pedestrians through, around or past an activity on a road reserve safely and with a minimum level of inconvenience.
Any work or activity, including events, being undertaken in the road reserve must be controlled by an approved Traffic Management Plan. There may be some exceptions around footpaths - see Use of Footpath Space.
A Traffic Management Plan (TMP) describes the design, implementation, maintenance and removal of an activity being carried out on the carriageway, footpath or road reserve, and how road users will be managed by temporary traffic management measures.
It usually includes a plan and pictures of the area.
An approved TMP is needed whenever there are proposed works, activities or events that will occur anywhere on the road reserve (fence to fence) . Applicants must programme and organise their event or work so that traffic flow is maintained at all times unless a road closure has also been applied for and approved by Hamilton City Council. If you wish to close a road for a work activity (such as an event) then you will need to submit your Traffic Management plan at least 42 days before the event, as a closure legally requires public advertising, notification letters and signage.
