Did you know that part of your responsibilities, as a Timaru or Oamaru based provider of temporary traffic management, is to submit a thorough TMP (Traffic Management Plan) to the relevant RCA (Road Controlling Authority), written by a fully accredited Site Traffic Management Supervisor (STMS)?
Both STMSs and TCs (Traffic Controllers) are required to hold up-to-date warrants to complete their work. No matter how many years experience they may hold, once a warrant expires, it is no longer valid – so deploying staff who have neglected to recertify their accreditations can land your business is very hot water.
Failing to comply with the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management (CoPTTM) can result in being issued with non compliances, or in some circumstances your team may even be shut down by the local RCA.
Plenty of Temporary Traffic Management Forecast for Oamaru & Timaru Regions
NZTA have plans to progress work on a business case to build a second bridge across the Ashburton River, and improvements to the corridor through neighbouring Tinwald, while resilience and safety improvements are planned for Thompsons Track, including road widening and resealing.
Three bridges over the Rangitata Diversion will be upgraded to unlock HPMV access on local roads in the area.
Further south, a number of bridges on key freight routes in Timaru will be upgraded to improve HPMV access, as well as realigning the Seadown and Meadows Roads intersection to both improve safety and provide better access to the industrial zones at Washdyke.
