What is a Traffic Management Plan?
A traffic management plan is a written document often including CAD (computer aided design) drawings which will consider the safe and effective movement of all and will demonstrate how any interaction with normal traffic movements can and will be minimised.
It can be expected that the local highway authority will require public transport, cycling and walking to be minimally affected by your occupation of the Public Highway. Another very common expectation is that wherever possible event organisers should encourage the use of public transport, cycling and walking to their event. The traffic management plan is the best way to show how you are going to do this.
The specific documentation we will provide in the traffic management plan is the clearest way to show how you intend to meet a local highway authority’s Network Management Duty and therefore ensure the expeditious movement of vehicles and pedestrians around your road works or event site. We will provide documents that are as effective and complete as possible.
What is a local highway authority’s Network Management Duty?
The Traffic Management Act 2004 placed a new ?network management duty’ on the local highway authority as a traffic authority to manage and secure the expeditious movement of traffic on their road network and to facilitate traffic movement on other traffic authorities’ road networks.
This is complex and legally binding documentation and we will ensure you meet the requirements and also in the traffic management plan explain how you will do so too.
But I’m not really having that much effect on the road network so why do I need a traffic management plan?
Explaining your road works or event with reference to the roads specific use or the closures you need to the local highway authority in language they understand will speed up your authorisations and also reassure the authority that you are professional and have their interest at heart. You are more likely to get permission for your event or get your road works granted with a full and concise traffic management plan.
