Traffic Management Plans

Developing and implementing a Traffic Management Plan (TMP) is important for managing traffic, communicating information regarding control measures and eliminating risks.  An effective traffic management plan illustrates elements including the layout of barriers, walkways, wheel stops, vehicle parking, traffic routes, signage and pavement markings to safely guide drivers, cyclists and pedestrians in off street parking facilities.

Car parking developments are supported by two forms of guidelines in Australia. These include AS/NZS 2890.1:2004 Parking Facilities – Off Street Car Parking and Austroads Guide to Traffic Engineering Part 11: Parking and supporting series for the provision of parking.

Although more commonly associated with roads and construction, Traffic Management Plans are also required for off-street parking facilities where the safe movement of cars, trucks, forklifts, pedestrians and cyclists within and around the road network is involved. Traffic Management Plans are applicable to:

  • Shopping centres
  • Hospitals and medical centres
  • Commercial car parks
  • Sporting complexes
  • Factories, warehouses and transport depots.

Experienced professionals developing practical solutions

A Traffic Management Plan for off-street road networks and parking facilities may be developed or updated to assist in managing risks and include (but not limited to):

  • Identifying traffic control signage for each expected interaction, including illustrations of the location of traffic and parking control signage to warn and guide traffic.
  • Identifying the parking requirements for customers, tenants, contractors, security personnel, couriers and visitors.
  • Identifying safe access paths to facilities for people with disabilities.
  • Specifying the roles and responsibilities of persons in the workplace for traffic management and instructions or procedures associated with the control of traffic.

IPS can prepare Traffic Management Plans at the construction stage utilising Auto-CAD that illustrate items such as:

  • Traffic circulation and flow
  • Vehicle turning path analysis
  • Parking equipment set out
  • Loading bays and truck parking zones
  • Employee, contractor and visitor parking zones.
  • Vehicular and pedestrian signage
  • Vehicle signalling systems
  • Pavement markings, including parking bay dimensions.
  • Speed limits
  • Pedestrian facilities
