Traffic Management

Traffic Management is the term used to describe the management of the existing road network and its users to maximise safety, efficiency and reliability. Our goal is to optimise road space allocation and traffic movement so that the best performance possible is achieved for all road users at all times.

AlburyCity has an important role in managing traffic movement and working with Roads and Maritime Services in dealing with the below issues:

  • Improving road safety.
  • Managing commuter, bus, freight and tourism movement.
  • Improving transport alternatives including bicycling, walking and travel demand management.
  • Congestion in major urban areas.
  • Delays caused by planned and unplanned incidents and special events.
  • Integration of land use developments into the road network.

If you are planning any works on a road, street, lane or footpath within Albury, you must submit a Traffic Control Plan (TCP) for our review.

This requirement is in accordance with the Road Management Act 2004 (A code of practice for worksite safety – traffic management), the Road Safety Act 1986 and Australian Standard AS 1742.3 2009 Traffic control devices for works on roads.

A Traffic Control Plan covers such things as temporary changes to traffic conditions, road and footpath closures and traffic detours. All TMPs submitted for approval must meet the following terms and conditions:

  • All TCPs must be prepared by an RMS qualified professional traffic consultant or company and must be in accordance with Australian Standard AS 1742.3 2009.
  • Please ensure the information provided is true and accurate. Any inaccurate information or inconsistencies may result in the assessment of your application being either delayed or rejected.
  • The TCP is to comply with the Roads & Maritime Services Traffic Control at Work Sites manual

Our Traffic Management / Engineering Branch will review your TCP to assess the impact on the movement or safety of pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists or vehicles. If appropriate, we will issue a Traffic Control Plan approval, subject to conditions (see details below). If you do not comply with all the conditions, AlburyCity may revoke any approvals and may pursue enforcement action.

Conditions relating to Traffic Control Plans

A Traffic Control Plan approval will be issued subject to a number of conditions. The document below lists all the standard conditions which apply to every Traffic Control Plan approved by AlburyCity. We may also specify additional conditions, depending on the type of works to be undertaken and the site conditions.

Other permits and approvals

In addition to submitting your Traffic Control Plan for review, you may also require one or more of the following AlburyCity permits and approvals.
