Traffic impact assessments
ISG staff have undertaken a large number of traffic impact assessments in ACT and NSW. Our work on these projects is tailored to the specific issues that will make or break these projects, with a focus on the traffic and transport issues that are relevant to obtaining approval for the development.
We work closely with government, developers, architects and designers to balance the often competing needs of the various stakeholders.
Our staff are highly familiar with approval requirements in ACT and NSW, including Section 94 contributions in NSW. They also have a wealth of expertise in assessing road network facilities, car parking requirements, parking layout functional design, service vehicle access and road system implications for major retail, office and commercial developments.
Installation of traffic controls
Our experienced team offers the most expert and comprehensive traffic control and management service available, particularly when combined with our partners Capital Lines and Signs.
ISG offers experienced traffic controllers with the ability to handle a variety of situations, from basic stop/slow routines to major road reconstruction operations. We can supply fully equipped traffic control vehicles – with the latest technology in warning lights, arrow boards and power management systems. We also provide signage in accordance with the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices and Australian Standards requirements.
Complete traffic management services
ISG offers a complete traffic management service from single lane closure to large scale traffic management operation, for a range of situations. Our traffic controllers are well trained and accredited with RTA to ensure that traffic management is carried out safely and that the service is of the highest quality.
Temporary traffic management plans
Developers and contractors are responsible for the safety of the work force and the public at work sites under their control and in adjacent public areas. Temporary traffic management (TTM) measures ensure that road users can travel safely through, around or past work sites on roads, footpaths and cyclepaths.
A TTM includes a written document detailing how to safely manage the traffic such as pedestrians, vehicles and cyclists while work is carried out on a legal road (property boundary to property boundary including footpaths). As each roadwork site is unique, individual TTMs are required for each site and may also be required for individual work activity during the term of the works.
The TTM is a risk management plan and consists of:
- Documentation of the risk assessment for the project and the procedures and practices that will be utilised to manage the risk exposure
- Traffic control diagram outlining signage and device placement which are commonly used
All of ISG’s plans are done to the relevant government requirements and standards using AutoCAD, making the job of obtaining approvals easier. RapidPlan diagrams are also available to make the job of the contractors and traffic controllers easier.
Traffic control is governed by the Australian Standard AS 1742.3-2002, and by state guidelines such as the Traffic Management for Works on Roads Code of Practice. Risk management is regulated under AS/NZS 4360:1999.
