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. The contents of QGTTM are issued as 'approved notices' under Section 166(2) of said 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When a harmonised QGTTM Part is published, the previous version will be withdrawn and will cease to have effect.
