The back-to-school period is always a busy time on the roads, making quality traffic management plans vital for organisations planning projects that impact on motorists, pedestrians and workers.
At STA Traffic Management Solutions, we’ve been designing and carrying out Melbourne traffic management plans for more than 20 years. We’re leaders when it comes to keeping people safe and traffic flow smooth in the vicinity of projects including major road construction, special events, overhead powerline upgrades, drainage work or even footpath repairs.
And if your project is anywhere near a school, or on a major route used by school community traffic, it’s vital that every piece of the traffic management jigsaw is slotted carefully into place to ensure everyone remains safe from harm.
There are more than 1300 primary and secondary schools in Melbourne and they’ll be opening their classrooms to students for 2017’s term one within the next week. That will spark major change on our roads, with an increase in traffic during school drop off and pick up times. There’ll also be more buses on the roads, more traffic on footpaths near schools and more kids on bikes.
It’s a time for vigilance from everyone – motorists, cyclists, pedestrians and people working on construction and upgrade projects on or near these roads. No-one can afford to be distracted.
With over two decades of experience in the industry, we realise there can be an increased safety risk around school areas and work hard to make sure we have a clear understanding of pedestrian, motorist and cyclist movements in the vicinity of each project.
Our team is well versed in all aspects of traffic safety codes and regulations and is armed with sophisticated traffic planning tools to provide a professional and high-quality result. Having us on board means you can be confident your traffic management plan will meet all regulatory requirements, allowing your project to proceed smoothly while minimising risk to workers and the public.
