Temporary Traffic Management – Training Nelson/Tasman | Whakatū/Te Tai o Aorere

Road resurfacing is crucial to the long term maintenance and safety of our District’s roads. Each year about 75 kilometres of road is resurfaced – or 8 per cent of the District’s 975km of sealed roads. It’s a $2.1 million programme of work, of which the New Zealand Transport Agency funds half.

Most of the resurfacing done is chip seal (small stones over emulsified bitumen) because it is a cost effective way to keep water out of the underlying road structure and provides a highly skid-resistant surface. Some resurfacing is done with asphalt (smooth black surfacing), however, because of the cost, among other reasons, this cannot be used everywhere.

It’s no wonder that career opportunities in the construction and roading industry are one of the most viable in the Nelson/Tasman region.

Traffic Controller (TC) and Site Traffic Management Supervisor (STMS) Training & Qualifications

Providers of temporary traffic management solutions and services have a duty-of-care to guarantee their staff hold valid Traffic Controller or Site Traffic Management Supervisor warrants.

Remember, if a warrant is even 1 day overdue, you can be issued non compliances (or even ordered to shut down) by the local Road Controlling Authority (RCA) for failing to comply with the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management (CoPTTM).
