What is a traffic management plan?

traffic management plan/temporary traffic management plan (often shortened to a “TMP” or “TTMP”) is essentially a suite of documents that give details on the proposed measures which are to be implemented to ensure the safety and integrity of the road workers and road users whilst the construction work is being carried out. These documents shall be prepared by an experienced Temporary Traffic Management Designer with a valid certificate and knowledge of the current legislation. To ensure compliance, the Traffic Management Designer must carefully consider the characteristics of the site and develop a traffic management plan which best addresses the site constraints in a safe manner in so far as is reasonably practicable by the application of the following:

  • Chapter 8 of the Traffic Signs Manual.
  • Temporary Traffic Management Design Guidance.
  • Temporary Traffic Management Operations.

The traffic management plan should be submitted to the relevant Local Authority for approval prior to carrying out any roadworks on public roads.
