Temporary Traffic Management (TTM)
This is the process of managing road users through or past a closure in a safe manner with minimal delay and inconvenience. In Australia, the regulations for this may vary state-to-state. For New Zealand users, the link below contains some more information:
The options include:
- Road Level - How busy is the road involved in the work? Definitions vary slightly between Australia and New Zealand.
- No. of Closed Lane(s) - How many lanes need to be closed off for the work to go ahead?
- TTM Impacts - Which sections of the road are involved? Select from road shoulder, single lane, part of road or whole road.
- TTM Measures - How do you plan on redirecting the traffic?
- COPTTM Generic TMP (NZ only) - Select which (if any) CoPTTM TMPs are being used.
