Queensland Guide to Temporary Traffic Management (QGTTM)
The Queensland Guide to Temporary Traffic Management (QGTTM) is issued under the authority of Section 166 of the Transport Operations (Road use Management) Act 1995 (Qld). The contents of QGTTM are issued as 'approved notices' under Section 166(2) this Act.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads has adopted Austroads Guide to Temporary Traffic Management 2019 as part of national harmonisation. As a result, the Queensland Guide to Temporary Traffic Management (QGTTM) will only provide requirements and recommendations specific to Queensland and has precedence over the equivalent Austroads Part.
The requirements and recommendations of the QGTTM take precedence over the Austroads (except where the Austroads is accepted without changes). Feedback on the content of QGTTM can be forwarded to Transport and Main Roads by emailing TrafficEngineering.Support@tmr.qld.gov.au.
Harmonisation of the QGTTM will affect all users of the MUTCD including Transport and Main Roads Regions/Districts, local government authorities, contractors and consultants. All users will need to refer to both the QGTTM, Austroads, Queensland MUTCD and the Australian Standard.
When a harmonised QGTTM Part is published, the previous version will be withdrawn and will cease to have effect.
New standards for Temporary Traffic Management in effect in Queensland from 1 December 2021.
What does this mean for projects currently underway?
For contracts in place prior to 1 December 2021, the version and applicable parts of the Queensland Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) and Queensland Guide to Temporary Traffic Management that were specified in the tender (and then in the contract documents), are still considered to be applicable for the duration of the project. The legal support for this is detailed in the Transitional Guideline Approved Notice (following):
