Traffic management across New Zealand’s network of state highways and local roads is fundamental to keeping people safe on our roads.

Changes to the operation of these roads under temporary traffic management is a core activity on the network, providing safety and access to all road users and workers.

The Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management (CoPTTM) is best practice guideline for temporary traffic management in New Zealand.
