Short-term non compliance at roadwork sites (during set-up & breakdown)

In TMR’s June Traffic Management Newsletter they have acknowledged that during set-up of a worksite there may be some short-term non-compliance with some MUTCD clauses. See below for what they have said.

During set-up and removal of traffic control devices at road worksites, it is acknowledged that non-compliances withsome clauses of the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) will occur.

This can include, for example, when signs and devices are installed in one direction of travel, and not the other, offset speed zones will be created. While the MUTCD does not permit offset speed zones on two lane two way roads (other than at buffer zones), any such non-conformance during the set-up or removal process is not considered a nonconformance with the requirements of the MUTCD.

TMR encourages traffic control providers to minimise the set-up and removal times as much as possible, and proactively manage risks associated with any non-compliance.” – Department of Transport and Main Roads Queensland, Traffic Management Newsletter (June 2019).
