New Pathway for the Implementation of Nationally Harmonised Temporary Traffic Management Practice


The Austroads project progressing the National Harmonisation of Temporary Traffic Management Practice has gone through a significant reset, resulting from a recent review. The outcomes of the review and resulting reset were recently considered and approved by the Board of Austroads. This webinar, presented by Richard Delplace and Chris Koniditsiotis, covers the following:

  • broad findings of the review and reset
  • new governance arrangements including newly established Task Force
  • focus on major reform implementation and stakeholder engagement
  • a staged pathway to operationalisation.

Draft National Prequalification Scheme for Temporary Traffic Management


This webinar, presented by Richard Delplace and Thuan Nguyen on 18 August 2020, provides an overview of the Draft National Prequalification Scheme for Temporary Traffic Management (NPSTTM), which has been developed by Austroads in consultation with its member agencies represented on the Temporary Traffic Management Technical Reference Group (TTMTRG).

The NPSTTM document provides information on a proposed framework for companies wishing to become prequalified for temporary traffic management works. Prequalification is a mandatory requirement for all works managed by state and territory road authorities participating in the scheme. Local governments and other road infrastructure sector representatives may also adopt the scheme as part of their contracts.

Austroads is currently seeking comments on the NPSTTM and this webinar is an opportunity for industry representatives to learn more about the document before they submit their feedback on 28 August 2020.

Draft National Training Framework for Temporary Traffic Management


This webinar, presented by Richard Delplace and Thuan Nguyen on 17 August 2020, provides an overview of the Draft National Training Framework for Temporary Traffic Management (NTFTTM), which has been developed by Austroads in consultation with its member agencies represented on the Temporary Traffic Management Technical Reference Group (TTMTRG).

The NTFTTM document sets out a proposed process and training requirements for practitioners responsible for design, control or implementation of temporary traffic management. The content of the framework will be incorporated in the Austroads Guide to Traffic Management (AGTTM) Part 8.

Austroads is currently seeking comments on the NTFTTM and this webinar is an opportunity for industry representatives to learn more about the document before they submit their feedback on 28 August 2020.
