Generic / Site Specific Traffic Management Plan Checklist

 Can I use a generic plan or do I require a site-specific plan?

The amount of details and information to be provided in a TMP can vary depending upon the nature and complexity of the project.  For routine/repetitive type works such as minor pavement maintenance, a generic TMP may be appropriate. 

The below checklist has been developed to assist in determining the need for the traffic management setup to be generic or site specific. However, those implementing the plan need to be very aware of the scope of situations covered by the plan. 

Where a TMP is to be used on more than one occasion or at a number of generic locations, continuous improvement must be considered. This will ensure the quality of traffic management is maintained or improved where required. The process should include debrief meetings to discuss any issues or risks associated with the plan. TMP’s must be kept up to date taking into account changes in; traffic volumes, vehicle types, the road environment, work practices, legislation and/or standards. As a minimum, TMPs should be reviewed at least once in any 12 month period.

 A ‘Yes’ to any of the questions requires a Site Specific plan

6. Do works require detouring traffic on a major or multi lane road?

 

 

7. Are there any visibility issues which could affect sight distance or vision of the road user on approach to the work area that are not catered for in the generic TMP?

 

 

8. Does the site contain side roads or driveways that are not catered for in the generic TMP that may impact on the site?

 

 

9. Will works interfere with the operation of permanent traffic signals? (e.g. switching to flashing amber?)

 

 

10. Will the works result in the complete closure of turning lanes?

 

 

 

11. Are the works likely to result in re-alignment of a road section or intersection impacting on a railway crossing?
