Temporary Traffic Management Steering Group appointees named

30 Mar 2023

The Road Worker Safety Governance Group process to form a new industry steering group for road worker safety has concluded and representatives have been chosen from those that applied through a formal expression of interest process.

The group’s first priority will be to support the implementation of a new approach to temporary traffic management (TTM) as New Zealand transitions away from a government-led compliance-based model to an industry-led risk-based model.

Association of Consulting and Engineering New Zealand Chief Executive Helen Davidson said there were a large number of high calibre expressions of interest received, which demonstrated the interest in the changes to TTM and the industry’s commitment to a successful transition.

“It’s great to see committed people putting their hands up to engage in these changes, and provide an interface for their parts of the industry, whether they be consultants and designers, clients, lead contractors or subcontractors.”  

Civil Contractors New Zealand Technical Manager Stacy Goldsworthy said the process for selection was robust, with 12 representatives selected from 38 applications.

Mr Goldsworthy said all interested parties could have an input into the changes, and should get in touch with their industry representative for more information, to have input into any changes with the implementation of the New Zealand Guide to Temporary Traffic Management, or to have their say on where changes should land.

The steering group is scheduled to hold its first meeting in mid-April.
