The Department of Transport and Main Roads has aligned our technical guidance for temporary traffic management in Queensland to the new Australian Standard AS1742.3:2019 and the Austroads Guide to Temporary Traffic Management (AGTTM).
This alignment involves:
- Harmonising the Queensland's Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) Part 3 with the national standard AS1742.3, and
- Introducing the Queensland Guide to Temporary Traffic Management (QGTTM) to harmonise with the AGTTM.
The AGTTM is a 10-part document that provides practitioners in all roles across the temporary traffic management industry with comprehensive guidance on the planning, design, installation, operation and management of temporary traffic management sites.
The harmonised MUTCD Part 3 (2020) and QGTTM will adopt specifications contained within the AS1742.3 and AGTTM respectively. The Queensland MUTCD and QGTTM will only detail variances to the AS1742.3 and AGTTM for use in Queensland.
This change has resulted in the restructuring of our TTM documents to align with the content of AS1742.3 and AGTTM, a summary of the documents relevant to TTM practice in Queensland, and their linkages, is provided in each of the documents.
For any technical questions regarding the application of the AS1742.3 and AGTTM, please contact TrafficEngineering.Support@tmr.qld.gov.au.
