Construction Traffic Management Plan

A construction traffic management plan is crucial for projects in order to safely manage the interaction and movement of people and vehicles around the site. The aim is to minimise road and pedestrian traffic disruption through the area and prevent accidents, personal injury, or damage. There is also the objective to enhance the local environment in and around the site.  


The construction traffic management plan documents actions to prevent or minimise the severity and number of injuries or damage caused by vehicle interactions by implementing clear traffic management processes to manage hazards and ensure the safety of the construction workers and the general public.

Our in-house accredited planners can provide you with all requirements for council development approvals, plans & permits, as well as building approvals. Our strong relationship with the council enables us to deliver fast, concise results to suit your needs.

Traffic Control Plan

To provide the highest level of safety to those on the site Traffic Control Plans are critical. It is a vital tool that helps traffic controllers safely and effectively direct traffic around construction sites, temporary road closures, and other potential hazards. With the aim to minimise the severity and number of hazards, the plan includes emergency procedures and how to deal with incidents when they occur.


Traffic control will include both traffic management staff and traffic management equipment, such as street signs, traffic signals, communication devices (two-way radios), roadwork signs, cones, bollards, and concrete barriers. An effective plan in place ensures the safety, efficiency, and effectiveness of the traffic management staff and equipment.

Our Traffic Control Plans are detailed, reliable and cost-effective. Under the WHSA 2011, Traffic Control Plans are required for any person conducting business or an undertaking. PCB/U are responsible for ensuring that those in and around the worksite are not exposed to risks to their health and safety. With SSTC, safety is always paramount.

Swept Path Diagram

A Swept Path Diagram is the assessment and analysis of a certain vehicle indicating its path when undertaking various movements such as right turns, U-turns, and three-point turns. This may consist of a collection of diagrams and is particularly needed when car parks and driveways are shared by various users in the development area.


Local councils or roads authorities will ask for a Swept Path Diagram for most Development Applications where there is a need to assess that the car park design, particularly when car parks and driveways of these developments are shared between various users, complies with Council DCP Clause 52.06 and Australian Standard AS2890.1-2004.

Authority Liaison

Don't know what licenses, approvals, plans & permits, building standards or guidelines you need? Our in-house Authority Liaison can help you make the right choice for the right job at the right time.


An Authority Liaison is central to the relationship between local authorities, construction companies and community members. Having a dedicated point of contact is beneficial not only to your construction company but also to the residents of the area. It allows for questions or complaints to be dealt with efficiently and effectively, ensuring the local residents are treated with respect and made to feel safe. This can also assist the residents in buying into the value of the project.

Site Establishment

An efficient and effective site establishment provides the foundation for a successful project by configuring, structuring, and organising the temporary facilities needed to support the on-site works.


There is a lot to consider in order to have an effective site establishment while focusing on the efficiency and safety of the site. Some of the factors to consider with a site establishment are safe access to the site, site layout, signage, access restrictions, security, and amenities. It is also critical to ensure procedures, plans & permits are all in place. Hazard awareness, controls, and contacts lists will also need to be considered to ensure your site is the safest and most efficient it can be. An effective site establishment will provide the foundation for a successful project.

Permit Application

There is plenty to consider when beginning a project with plans & permits through different authorities and following all regulations. SSTC provides you with the most reliable access to local councils for development applications and approvals, plans & permits submissions to council or government with affordable rates.
Do it the right way
Plans & permits from an RMS-registered and insured business are a requirement when working in a public space. Failure to do so could cause more problems than its worth.

Do it the right way, the SSTC way.

  • Traffic Management Plans
  • Vehicle Routing Plans
  • Site Delivery Management


The movement of construction vehicles and ongoing activities all over the construction site can result in casualties and injuries to workers and the public. The best way to avoid construction transport accidents is to devise a plan to eliminate any interaction between the
construction vehicles and pedestrians.

A traffic management plan for a construction site by SSTC will ensure that health and safety aren’t compromised and construction activities will go smoothly.

Safety measures are applied on the footpaths of pedestrians like signs, road marks, or a traffic controller at crossings to avoid walkers from being hit by vehicles. Vehicles will follow
a route to manage risks. Installation of ample road marks and signs at the construction site to warn pedestrians and vehicle operators of hazards.

Keeping People and Vehicles at Bay

Our traffic planner customizes the design of the traffic management plans according to the  needs of the builder and deals with the requirements of the council and RMS. Ideally, overhead walkways will avoid any contact between vehicles and pedestrians, however, if it’s
not possible, SSTC applies other methods to control construction traffic risks.

· A traffic controller will direct vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
· Barriers at entryways will prevent pedestrians from being hit by vehicles.
· Vehicles have different entry and exit from pedestrians.
· A route exclusive for pedestrians to stay away from using hazardous shortcuts.
· Physical barriers for mobile plants.
· Marked walkways.
· Vision panels on vehicle entryways.

Vehicle Routes

The vehicle routes at the construction site are solid and even surface, wide enough to accommodate large vehicles, well-kept, and uncluttered. To ensure safety, SSTC’s management plan considers posting signs with speed limits, speed humps, and parking

Traffic controllers assist vehicle operators during entry or exit from the construction site to avoid any collision with other vehicles on the road. There is enough passing space to manoeuvre around vehicles. Sharp corners are avoided, and the area is well lit. Suppliers
follow a delivery schedule to avoid long lines.

Signs and Road Markings

Traffic hazards are visible with signs using reflective paint to warn pedestrians and vehicle operators. These can be easily seen by concerned parties and positioned in different spots
at the construction site. The signs specify dangerous and safe areas, speed limits, hazardous corners, vehicle crossings, and where heavy equipment is operational.

Pedestrian Crossings

Most pedestrian accidents happen when people go across vehicle routes. SSTC’s traffic management for construction site targets a zero accident rate. To achieve this, traffic controllers at gateways assist pedestrians and drivers, and application of engineering
treatments like placing of barriers, installation of traffic lights, or warning systems along footpaths.

Signs are clearly marked for good visibility and mounted with light if need be. Obstructions are removed from pathways so they wouldn’t hinder a pedestrian’s or a vehicle operator’s vision or movement. A lighting system so drivers and pedestrians can see each other.
Markings are placed on slopes along pathways. A roof is installed along the pathway adjacent to the construction to prevent falling debris from hitting pedestrians.
