YHAUC Traffic Management Act Checklist for the implementation of the TMA
Traffic Management Act Implementation isn’t far off Have you thought about the following?
Introduction This checklist covers the following topics: 1.New noticing regime 2.Training & awareness 3.Fixed Penalty potential offences 4.Co-ordination of street works 5.Restrictions 6.General matters
New noticing regime (Pt 1) Software with GIS capability Review of TSS and other designations Does Register contain all relevant fields for record purposes Works for road purposes – How these will be registered on SWR YHAUC agreeing general principles / common process relating to early starts
New noticing regime (Pt 2) YHAUC agreeing general principles / common process relating to late starts YHAUC agreeing general principles / common process relating to extensions YHAUC agreeing a common process for road closures & use of portable lights A process for dealing with notice cancellations S81 process – ETON
New noticing regime (Pt 3) Implementation of the notice arrangements in respect of rail tracks & tramways The potential impact on standards of service / existing processes The impact of serving immediate work notices for related activity (closure of a valve) Developing acceptable standard descriptions Developing acceptable work durations
Training & awareness Contacts for differing areas of the TMA (e,g, FPN / Restrictions etc) Making people responsible for serving of notices aware of the requirements. Making the organisation aware of the TMA & potential impacts (Top / bottom) Ensuring that organisations are aware of the changes to work categories, notice types, restrictions etc Delivering training on the use of new software FPN offence avoidance training
Fixed Penalty potential offences Common YHAUC policies, strategies and procedures – developing a reasonable structured approach Gaining Work Promoters acceptance of the YHAUC approach as being reasonable Influencing software developers in helping to manage FPN potential offences (YHAUC).
Co-ordination of street works Longer term programmes of work Identifying causes of disruption Anticipation of actions of reduce disruption Objective method to calculate disruption Review of co-ordination effectiveness (agenda / attendees etc) Early warning procedures of immediate works on vulnerable streets
Restrictions How to inform frontages etc of works Common YHAUC procedure for proposals & responding to S58 requirements Common dispute resolution process (S58 & S56) Common YHAUC procedure for proposals & responding to S56 requirements Common YHAUC procedure for proposals & responding to S66 requirements
General matters Maximise 1st time permanent reinstatements Transitional arrangements to ensure seamless implementation Implementing incremental improvement performance measures Providing a plan / sketch of traffic management IT resilience (e.g. back up servers)
