Main Roads WA recently released the following Regional Roadworks Signage Review – Traffic Management Alert.
As you may be aware there are more road projects requiring traffic management now, and planned for the near future, than ever before.
Last year, nationally at Traffic Management sites, there were a number of fatalities and serious injuries involving Traffic Management personnel as well as the general public.
The information below highlights the importance of Traffic Management companies adhering to the correct processes and procedures to ensure a high level of safety and compliance is met when delivering Traffic Management at all times.
