Temporary traffic management

Temporary traffic management on Dunedin City Council's roads

The Dunedin City Council has formally adopted the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management (CoPTTM) as the standard by which traffic and pedestrians are to be managed at work and other event sites on roads and streets within the city's jurisdiction.

Accordingly, any person or organisation carrying out work or other activities on Council roads will be required to comply with these procedures which includes the requirement for temporary traffic management plans that must be prepared by a qualified 'Site Traffic Management Supervisor' (STMS) to be submitted to the Dunedin City Council at least 5 days prior to the work to

Traffic management plans that require road closures will be required to be submitted at least 21 days prior to allow time for the road closure to be advertised.

The qualification process is administered by the NZTA, and contractors and other operators are reminded that it is their responsibility to be properly qualified.

Further information on the Code of Practice is available on NZTA's website or contact us.

Road closures

Information about how to get a road closed for your event.

If you are having an event requiring some or all of a road to be closed temporarily, you need to register your event at least 30 days prior (if not more) to the final date by contacting us.

A qualified 'Site Traffic Management Supervisor' (STMS) is required to submit a traffic management plan, road closure application form and affected persons form to at least 21 days prior to the event to allow time for the road closure to be advertised.

The advertisement will be placed in the Otago Daily Times two Saturdays prior to the event (at the event organisers cost – this will include a $25.00 admin fee).

Event organisers are responsible for contacting every affected person within proposed road closure areas and getting their signature of approval. Should someone object to the proposed event then the event organiser must try to resolve the objection.
