The traffic management requirements for events is very different from that of normal roadworks. The hazards for both participants and traffic are greatly increased. Transit, local councils and OSH are clear in their stance of the need for traffic management. Organised events which “alter the normal operating conditions of the roadway” will require traffic management.
There have been several well publicised accidents at events that have brought the quality of, or lack of traffic management under the spotlight. Because event traffic management is so different from normal road construction requirements, Traffic Management NZ has a separate division that specialises in events.
The biggest advantage in having a specialised events division is that you are dealing with people who understand specific event requirements. The events team carry out traffic management for some of the largest events in New Zealand.
Traffic Management NZ can carry out traffic management requirements for any event. We have traffic managed the following New Zealand events:
Marathons, Triathlons, Parades, Cycle Races, Film Production Events, Multisport Events, Iron Man, Fieldays and Concerts.
Whether you’re putting 10,000 cyclists around a lake, or closing a road down for a small parade, our team can ensure your event is compliant and safe. Contact us about your next event requirements.
