management plans

Management Plans

management plans

Direct Traffic’s highly trained personnel are accredited to design and prepare top-quality management plans to meet any project requirements. We are dedicated to providing effective plans that optimise work efficiency and safety, whilst minimising traffic delays, congestion, and general inconvenience to all road users.

These include:

  • Pedestrian Management Plans (PMPs): This is a diagram which shows the allocated travel paths for workers and/or pedestrians both around and through your worksite. It shows all associated signs and devices which will be used to implement the proposed plan.
  • Traffic Control Plans (TCPs): This diagram illustrates where signage and devices will be placed in order to warn and manage traffic at and around your worksite. It includes many details, such as:
    • The location and spacing of signs and devices,
    • Relevant containment and safety fences/barriers,
    • Pavement markings and delineators,
    • Variable message and roadwork speed zone signs,
    • Pedestrian routes (if necessary)
  • Vehicle Movement Plans (VMPs): This diagram is used to show the preferred travel paths for vehicles requiring access to the work site. It should also show travel paths for trucks at any key points on routes remote from the worksite, such as places to turn, relevant accesses, and ramps.
  • Traffic Management Plans (TMPs): This is a report detailing the work to be undertaken and how the works will impact the general area, especially on public transport, cyclists, and pedestrians. The plan shows how these impacts will be addressed by the customer, and are often accompanied by other plans, such as VMPs and TCPs.
permit applications

Permit Applications

permit applications

The Direct Traffic design team will advise you of any and all applicable permits during the design process of your management plans. Using or occupying a road or public way will require approval from the relevant authority, and permits can vary. The kinds of permits that may need to be lodged include:

  • Road Occupancy License and Speed Zone Authorisation: a permit obtained from RMS to interrupt the flow of traffic. It will set out any special conditions that require compliance, as well as the relevant times and dates that works may be carried out on roadways.
  • Council permits: These permits will be specific to the Council, and can include Crane permits.

Our team will ensure that any required applications are made on your behalf and all necessary permits are obtained. We note that it is common to need multiple permits, as some roads are owned and maintained by different authorities.
