TTM Vehicle Selection and Operation

The guidance document, Temporary Traffic Management Vehicle Selection and Operation on High Speed Dual Carriageways including Motorways, is now completed.

The document addresses how to manage the selection of vehicles when installing, maintaining and removing temporary traffic management for high speed dual carriageways, including motorways.  This work occurs in a high risk environment and the guidance has been developed to reduce risks to road workers whilst not transferring that risk to road users. 

To IPV or not to IPV

That is the question many of those working in the traffic management industry will be asking in the light of the Highways Agency advice notes IAN 150/12, IAN 150/14 and the soon to be published IAN 181/14.

At Seeing Is Believing this November, TMCA will put this new Health & Safety Executive supported guidance on operative protection into action with a series of free full-scale demonstrations.
