Chartered Institute of Highways & Tranportation logo

The management of highway networks often necessitates the implementation of temporary traffic management measures to facilitate maintenance activities, temporary closures or incident management.

It is important to plan all works to optimise safety, use of road space and work efficiency whilst minimising congestion, delay and inconvenience.

Health and Safety legislation requires all employers and employees to establish and maintain safe systems of work whether they represent client, designer or contractor organisations.

Chapter 8 provides guidance on how to plan temporary traffic management to create a safe working environment for workers and to reduce risks to drivers and to vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists.

This course examines the key aspects of the two parts of Chapter 8 and other related guidance in the context of relevant legislation. It should qualify as one days CPD for Professional Institution purposes.
