Road traffic control involves directing vehicular and pedestrian traffic around a construction zone, accident or other road disruption, thus ensuring the safety of emergency response teams, construction workers and the general public. Traffic Control is undertaken by applying the traffic control plan or the designing of a specific plan for the control of traffic. The approach used by EGIS is based upon qualified personnel using the N.S.W. Roads and Traffic Authority’s Traffic Control at Work sites manual V4.0 and Australian Standards AS 1742.3 at all times.
When at a client’s work site our traffic controllers set up closures according to the approved plan. This is achieved by using various signs, barricades, cones, directional arrow boards and portable variable message signs. All these devices are used to safely divert traffic around and/or through a specific work site.
To facilitate your works Egis Traffic Management Solutions will prepare permit applications. In order to interrupt traffic an application must be made to the RMS or the road owner. Written permission is provided to the applicants by way of a Road Occupancy License (ROL) or letter of authority. Work permits and crane applications are also required to be lodged to local government authorities and municipal councils.
his license will stipulate any special conditions and the times and dates that the work may be carried out.
