As interpreted in the Road Management Act;
‘traffic management plan’ means the details of proposals for the management of traffic, including any relevant traffic guidance scheme and standard operating procedures that relate to the management of traffic during the conduct of works on roads (whether on the roadway, shoulder or roadside). Section 99A(4)(a) of the Road Safety Act 1986 requires that a traffic management plan ‘comply with the prescribed requirements’ of any relevant Regulations, being the Road Safety (Traffic Management) Regulations 2009.
