The Traffic Management for Events Advisory Group provides a forum for discussion of Main Roads' requirements for traffic management for events with representatives from Event Administrators, Event Organisers, Local Government, Police and Sporting Associations.
The Traffic Management for Events - Code of Practice has been developed to promote safe and consistent traffic management for events on roads in accordance with legal obligations and appropriate standards. It also outlines the training and accreditation requirements for persons responsible for designing traffic management schemes, or controlling traffic and/or people at events.
All organisations and individuals associated with event management on or near roads are encouraged to become familiar with the requirements of this document and to apply them with due consideration to all social, environmental, operational and legal implications.
The following bodies have been authorised by the Commissioner of Main Roads to use traffic signs and devices on public roads in Western Australia for the purpose and duration of events, in accordance with a duly signed and sealed Instrument of Authorisation.
