Traffic Management Company Registration Scheme

This registration scheme applies to any company, agency or organisation that implements temporary traffic management on State roads. Registration is required if the traffic management requires a closure or speed restriction. This applies to all State roads across Western Australia. 

The aim of this scheme is to improve the quality and safety of traffic management on State roads. Traffic management is a high risk activity and deviation from safety standards can lead to death or serious injury to the public and road workers. Incorrect traffic management can also cause increased congestion. The scheme is a significant initiative to improve the safety and quality of traffic management on State roads in Western Australia. 

The scheme requires applicants to demonstrate safety, quality and consistency in delivering traffic management services. Applicants will be required to provide evidence of their suitability against selection criteria. The registration requirement is in addition to the existing requirements for individuals to be trained and accredited.



 The main objectives of the registration scheme are to:

  • Improve the quality and consistency of traffic management on site
  • Increase the safety of the public and road workers
  • Raise industry standards and improve industry image
  • Establish feedback mechanisms and tangible consequences for companies that fail to implement correct traffic management.
