TMR have released a library of fact sheets for works on roads over the last number of years providing information to clarify misunderstandings or fill gaps in the knowledge of industry as a whole.
These fact sheets provide easy to read, relevant information for the traffic management industry in general and for traffic management designers in particular.
Vulnerable road users require special consideration at roadwork sites as changed conditions can seriously affect the ability for these road users to safely navigate through , with a recent release highlighting motorcycles. Previous fact sheets have also focused on pedestrians and cyclists (also considered vulnerable road users).
These fact sheets can be found on the TMR website or by clicking here.
Looking for some light reading over Christmas? Than look no further than the Austroads Guide to Temporary Traffic Management (AGTTM).
Austroads released their much anticipated Guide to Temporary Traffic Management in early December 2019.
At present, it is unknown how much of the guide Queensland will adopt as the decision will be made by Transport and Main Roads Queensland (TMR).
TMR have released a statement on the Guide which can be downloaded by clicking here. (Note: this will automatically download the statement in pdf format)
However, this is still a great opportunity to see what may be coming down the pipeline for traffic management in our state.
The 10 parts of the guide can be downloaded for free from the Austroads website here.
The new release of AS1742.3 is expected soon.
