Traffic Control FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right traffic control supplier for your job

1. What does traffic control mean?

Traffic control is the control of the flow of traffic in a city and other areas with heavy traffic. In construction terms, traffic control is the effort made, so that road construction is safe for vehicles and pedestrians around it. Site routes that are suitable for both persons and vehicles must be made for efficient traffic control. These routes must also have suitable positions and can accommodate sufficient traffic.

 

2. What are traffic control plans?

Traffic control plans are plans set to ensure the safety of road users (such as pedestrians and vehicles) and protection of the workers at the construction site. The plan contains instructions for the site and road crews to follow on how the traffic will be managed around the site and its activities - it is usually in the form diagrams, showing road conditions. There will be detailed layout drawings of temporary road signs and devices installed as a warning and guide for traffic around, through and past the site. An effective traffic control plan successfully separates outside traffic from the construction site and its workers.

Work health and safety (WHS) requirements also include a traffic control plan. Each State and Territory and Federal Australian Standards all have established traffic control for road works manuals in their respective jurisdictions. Therefore, your traffic control plans must adhere to the principles listed in each respective manuals below:

  • New South Wales - The Traffic Control at Work Sites Manual
  • Queensland - MUTCD Part 3
  • Victoria - Code of Practice-Worksite Safety Traffic Management
  • Western Australia - Code of Practice-Traffic Management for Works on Roads
  • South Australia - Field Guide (traffic control devices for work zone traffic management)

Please note that requirements and policies vary from state to state.

 

3. What are the different types of traffic control devices?

  • Signs - Traffic signs use words and symbols to inform road users. These are made with retroreflective materials that ensure maximum visibility at night. There are two types of signs, (1) traditional and (2) variable. Traditional signs are regulatory, warning, and guide signs, while variable or variable-message signs are electronic traffic control signs that can be used to convey different traffic messages.

  • High-level warnings - Also called "flag trees", these high-level warnings are placed high (not lower than eight feet) and are used in work zones in urban areas with high traffic density. This device features two or three square orange flags and often come with a flashing warning light.

  • Channelling devices - The most common channelling devices are traffic drums and cones. These are used to warn and guide drivers and pedestrians through a work zone. They can be placed between opposing traffic streams or between traffic and road construction zones.

  • Road surface markings - A type of traffic control device that is directly applied to road surfaces. It designates lanes and indicates stopping points at intersections to both guide and channel traffic. These markings may also be removable or permanent.

  • Rumble strips - These are roughened surfaces that make a loud rumbling sound and vibration when run over by a vehicle. They can be either embossed or recessed and placed across traffic lanes to alert drivers of nearby potentially hazardous sites.

  • Lights - These signals are especially helpful in alternatively assigning right-of-way to traffic at an intersection that is moving in conflicting directions. It has three colours, red, green and yellow. Vehicles facing the red light must stop while those facing the green light can proceed. Yellow light notifies drivers that a red light will follow; therefore, they must stop when it is safe to do so.
