The draft New Zealand guide to temporary traffic management sets out ways to improve safety for everyone on Aotearoa New Zealand roads.
It outlines how to use a risk-based approach to prioritise the safety of all road users including people walking, on bikes, driving vehicles and the many New Zealanders who work on our roads.
It will be useful for road construction and maintenance, events, emergency response or any activity where a temporary road design is required.
The draft guide has been developed with input from across the road safety sector and international practices to help contribute to Road to Zero, New Zealand’s road safety strategy, where no one is killed or seriously injured on our roads.
Public consultation on the draft guide is now closed. We’re continuing to engage with stakeholders while we analyse the detailed feedback. We’ll continue to update this page.
