Traffic control devices manual

The NZ Transport Agency’s Traffic control devices manual (TCD manual) [PDF, 9.4 MB] provides guidance on industry good practice including, where necessary, practice mandated by law.

Specific information on level crossings can be found in Part 9 of the TCD manual [PDF, 9.4 MB].  That document was developed with guidance from the Level Crossing Working group, a standing group convened by the NZTA. This group represents rail participants (KiwiRail and Federation of Rail Organisations of New Zealand (FRONZ)), road controlling authorities (RCAs), the Ministry of Transport and the NZTA.

If you are seeking information on how you interact with the rail corridor as a Road Controlling Authority, please go to the Transport Agency’s Resources page. Visit the Transport Agency’s legal framework page for more general information.
