The Queensland Guide to Traffic Management (QGTM) is issued under the authority of Section 166 of the Transport Operations (Road Use Management) Act 1995 (Qld). The contents of QGTM are issued as 'approved notices' under Section 166(2) of this Act.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads has adopted Austroads' Guide to Traffic Management (AGTM) 2020 as part of national harmonisation. As a result, the QGTM will only provide requirements and recommendations specific to Queensland and has precedence over the equivalent Austroads Part.
The QGTM will be released and updated progressively and will ultimately replace the Traffic and Road Use Management (TRUM) manual Volume 1: Guide to Traffic Management. When a harmonised QGTM Part is published, the previous version of either QGTM or the TRUM Part it replaces will be withdrawn and will cease to have effect.
Harmonisation of the QGTM will affect Transport and Main Roads Regions / Districts, local government authorities, contractors and consultants. All users will need to refer to both the QGTM and AGTM.
An amendment register (PDF, 202 KB) records changes to the harmonised QGTM.
