Traffic Management Plans and Safety Solutions Services

May 14, 2018

Issued by a locally commissioned authority, a Traffic Management Plan (TMP) has been issued. It's there to ease road congestion and protect the contractors as they go about their business. With it in place, the trenching operation safely carves out a ground channel that crosses the road or parallels that busy thoroughfare. Meanwhile, the road is still open.

Traffic Management Plans in Action

The Corridor Access Request (CAR) has been approved and we're clear to go. Very soon now, the trench will be exposed and new cables or pipes will be laid. But it's what's going on around the perimeter that's causing concern. There's fast traffic zooming up and down the highway. Pedestrians are crossing nearby and craning their necks to see what's going on in the trench. Not to worry, traffic control measures are being implemented. In point of fact, those measures are put in place before the trench. There are lines of orange cones, flashing lights, perimeter-establishing ribbons of plastic tape, and ever-present warning signs. At night, when drivers have trouble seeing beyond the road corridor, the lights flash brightly and reflective cone collars guide the traffic toward temporary stop lights. Everything is under control, all thanks to that traffic management plan.

Where Safety Solutions Services Take Root

Even with all of these traffic control measures in place, there's danger abroad. Preoccupied workers are labouring near a fast-moving highway. Fortunately, the cones and warning bollards are forcing the cars to slow down. A warning sign illuminates as the sun drops, so a reckless driver doesn't get it in his head to punch the pedal and speed through the work zone. As for the workers, they're trained to safely conduct themselves with professional competence. Each member, whether he's on a walky-talky or heading out to the trench, is equipped with a hard hat and reflective clothing. At the end of the day, a single lane is closed during the work, but the traffic management plan is taking its lead from the finest safety solution services.

The road safety measures are up, so it's time for the trenching service to swing into action. A power saw cuts through the tarmac and concrete. The channel line is marked on the plan, so there's a safe zone for the workers to extend that growing trench. The hard-packed road surface is now lifted and removed, then the excavator gets its call. After the dirt is removed, the second phase of the operation moves smoothly into motion. Pipes are laid, cables are situated, and the Traffic Management Plan carefully maintains that safety-essential buffer zone.
