3. What does traffic management involve?

The traffic management plan is not only made for the road user but also for the safety of the workers on the project. Therefore, it involves safety equipment that can be found around the site, such as cones, barrier fences, traffic lights, and traffic diversions through road closures. Traffic management operatives are also given safety measures to avoid potential road injuries. These safety measures are:

  • Hi-vis clothing: A form of PPE that helps operatives stand out to oncoming headlights. This is usually worn when closing roads, lanes, or implementing diversions. It is especially worn at night.

  • Safety helmet with lights: Another safety equipment that is extremely handy and essential at night. It not only illuminates the worker's surroundings but also makes them visible to other road users.
