The NZ Transport Agency is consulting on the Traffic control devices manual part 5 – traffic control devices for general use – between intersections.
This document provides guidance and best practice for road controlling authorities and traffic management practitioners on the use of traffic control devices, such as signs and road marking, between intersections. Traffic control devices are used to regulate, warn and advise road users on New Zealand’s road network.
In particular, it provides specifications, form, layout and dimensions of traffic control devices which are mandated by legislation, principally Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

The consultation closes at 5pm on Friday, 14 September 2018, after which a final document will be prepared and released.
The purpose of the Traffic control devices manual part 5 is to guide traffic and transport practitioners on the use and application of traffic control devices, primarily traffic signs and road markings, for general use between intersections.
The Traffic control devices manual part 5 has been drafted under the guidance of a Traffic Control Devices Steering Group comprising representatives from across the transport sector.
The Transport Agency is now consulting on this draft with other road controlling authorities, traffic and transport practitioners and road user groups for feedback prior to finalising the document.
We are keen to ensure the application of traffic control devices and road markings is fit for purpose and nationally consistent for those using the road network.Close
The Traffic control devices manual will, once completed, replace the joint Transit New Zealand and Land Transport NZ publication Manual of traffic signs and markings (MOTSAM).
The planned structure of the Traffic control devices manual comprises 15 parts. Each part has been or is being developed under the guidance of a working group of practitioners experienced in, and having specific knowledge about, the subject.

Feedback will be collated and considered by the Traffic Control Devices Steering Group. After feedback has been considered, a final version will then be confirmed and published after ratification by the Standards and Guidelines Steering Group.Close
Road controlling authorities should be using traffic control devices according to best practice, which historically has been detailed in the MOTSAM. Over time, the use and application of some devices has evolved and new devices have been added.
Following consultation, Part 5 of the Traffic control devices manual will reflect the most up to date best practice for road controlling authorities and should therefore be considered best practice by road controlling authorities.Close
