Traffic Management Plan

This plan is to be completed for all projects as part of the Project HSSEC plan based on outcomes of the Project FRA. The Traffic Management Plan must incorporate any hazards encountered on the route to the Project and must be approved by the Exploration Manager. Project


Project Lead


Site Traffic Plan A site Traffic Map is attached as appendix 1, the Layout Plan shows the Project road system including: 

Recommended safe route to access the project and alternative routes where available;

Traffic flow direction;

Speed limits;

Hazardous areas;

Parking areas;

Areas to segregate pedestrians and vehicles;

Areas to segregate light and heavy vehicle areas,;

No go areas such as sensitive community, environmental or heritage areas;

Gates to be left open/closed;

Enter project Specific items here;     ;

Hazardous Areas and Specific Controls Provide a description any Project specific hazards, this is to include items such as: 

Steep slopes requiring low gear selection ;

Creek crossings;

High risk pedestrian areas;

Heavy vehicle operation areas;

High risk security areas;

High risk wildlife areas;

Dust areas and actions to take to avoid;

Road damage areas;

Adverse weather procedures, i.e. “go/no go” criteria for abnormal road conditions (e.g. rain, snow, high winds, creek and river crossings);

Parking and Vehicle Security Requirements When a vehicle is left unattended: 

The engine must be switched off;

The vehicle must be left in first or reverse gear (automatic park);

The park brake must be fully applied;

If on a slope the wheels must be chocked and turned so that the vehicle will roll into the kerb or embankment,

Must not be within 50 metres of any a heavy vehicle or equipment such as a Bulldozer or Grader;

Enter project Specific items here;     ;

Fatigue Management Only persons who have received the XXXXX fatigue management training will be allowed to drive for or on behalf of XXXXX. Journey Management All Journeys: 

With a expected duration of two hours or more; and/or

That any part takes place between sunset and sunrise.

Will be covered by a Journey Management Plan (EXPL HSSEC TEM 419) approved by the Project Lead. Road Design and Maintenance Provide detail on the road design, the roads capabilities for traffic flow and maintenance required to maintain the road in a safe condition. The road design must take into account: 

Outcomes of the FRA;

Type of equipment that will use the road;

The amount of traffic expected;

Traffic flow and potential peek periods;

The skill level and competence of expected road users (i.e.: trained personnel, general public etc.);

The topography of the land;

Soil types and available road construction materials;

Rainfall and abnormal weather events;

Road sign requirements;

Intersection layout;

Berm construction;

Water management; and

Dust control.

Road Condition Reports and Maintenance Road reports will be provided at daily HSSEC meetings by any person using the roads. All roads that are the responsibility of the company shall be inspected at least weekly. Information on off project area roads will be provided by drivers on those roads. Road maintenance will be conducted to maintain roads in a safe condition based on the reports. Where maintenance is not able to be performed in a timely manner then other controls will be implemented including; 

Regulating access;

Utilising alternate routes;

Regulating traffic/speed;

Closing sections of roads and using signage.

Interaction with Heavy Vehicles or Equipment Light vehicles and Pedestrians are not permitted within 50 metres of any operating heavy equipment. To approach

heavy equipment a person must either: 

Contact the operator via two way radio or phone; or

Make visual contact with the operator.

The operator must confirm the contact by replying over the radio/phone or visually acknowledge they have seen the Light Vehicle/ person. The operator will then stop his machine and apply the park brake before giving permission for the person to enter the work area. Any interaction of heavy equipment and a person on the ground (i.e. spotter) must be controlled by an established procedure approved by the Project Lead. Driver Code of Conduct A Driver code of conduct has been developed for the Project and provided as Appendix 2. The code of conduct is displayed in all vehicles and included in the site specific induction for all personnel. The code includes requirements for: Provide an agreed code of conduct for Drivers on the Project (example provided as Appendix 2) Monitoring Driver Behaviour In order to effectively monitor driver behaviour: 

The EXPL HSSEC TEM 402 Driving Behavioural Observation can be completed by any person at any times; and

Driver behaviour will be monitored via interrogation of the in vehicle satellite tracking system will be interrogated to identify driver behaviour discrepancies.

Exploration Manager Approval I approve the use of this Traffic management Plan for the period from       to       Name:       Date       Signed: _________________________________________________________________________________
