We all have a part to play in improving safety for road workers and road users who are working at or moving through a temporary traffic management site.

These resources have been created to help you better understand the risk-based approach that underpins the draft New Zealand guide to temporary traffic management and support your conversations with the different groups of people who work in road safety.

We'll be adding to this section over time and are looking for ideas and feedback, email us at ttm.consult@nzta.govt.nz

Videos

We know that others who work in road safety support a risk-based approach too.

Take a look at these videos to find out how a risk-based approach can be applied to a roadworks site and to sport events to keep people safe.

Weld Pass – taking a risk-based approach to safety

The Weld Pass, midway between Blenheim and Seddon, underwent safety improvements and road resurfacing mid-February 2022. These works required 580 tonnes of asphalt mix, moved by eleven trucks.

Due to the 6m narrow width of this winding section of State Highway 1, the road crew used a new risk-based approach to temporary traffic management and closed the road to keep people safe.

The road crew completed the job in just four nights. Usually, it would take six to eight weeks.

 

Cycling New Zealand – benefits of a risk-based approach to sports clubs and community events

Janette Douglas, Events Director, Cycling New Zealand describes the benefits of using a risk-based approach to temporary traffic management when organising events.

The new approach gives sports clubs and organisers the ability to assess the risk that’s unique to their event and put in place the appropriate mitigations to keep all road users safe around their activity.

 

Safety around roadworks

It takes a mix of different factors to keep us safe on the road. The draft New Zealand guide to temporary traffic management is one way to help improve safety for everyone – road users as well as the many men and women who work on our roads.

Keeping our road workers safe takes all of us working together.

Take a look at an inspiring road safety message from one of our road crews in Northland. Their road safety poem, written by Tania Wihongi, showcases Tania and her crewmates raising awareness about taking care and slowing down when approaching road work sites.
