Traffic Management Plans (TMPs)

There are  events or activities in the road that don't require a Corridor Access Request (CAR) and a Work Access Permit (WAP) but still require a Traffic Management Plan (TMP), this includes:

  • street parades
  • cycle races
  • running or walking events, and
  • any other event which will seriously impact on the road network.

TMPs can only be completed by a Site Traffic Management Supervisor (STMS) with a current NZTA approved qualification. TMPs must be submitted a minimum of five working days prior to the start of works.

Criteria for the use of the 'full' or 'short' form TMP are as follows:

Short Form
This should only be used for simple activities where work is not in a live traffic lane e.g.

  • vehicle crossing construction
  • footpath construction
  • work on the shoulder or grass verge only
  • inspections

 

Full Form
This must be used for all other work and for generic plans:

WORK ACCESS PERMITS - WAPs

Before undertaking work in the legal road you must make a Corridor Access Request (CAR) - (formerly a Road Opening Notice - RON) and receive a Works Access Permit (WAP) from the Council. Some examples of activities requiring a permit are:

  • trenching works;
  • footpaths and entranceways;
  • work within the berm or shoulder of the road; and
  • tree work, scaffolding and crane work.

Submit your application through the "Before U Dig" website to check for locations of any underground services. This is a web based service that you or your contractor use to get plans and information emailed out to you. This also provides the mechanism for you to make a Corridor Access Request ADD LINK and provide us with a Traffic Management Plan to protect your site, contractors, and the public during operations. There are other events or activities in the road that don't require a CAR and WAP but still require a Traffic Management Plan (TMP) this includes:

  •  any work on Road Reserve;
  •  street parades;
  •  cycle races;
  •  running or walking events; and
  •  any other event which will seriously impact on the road network.
