Traffic Control Devices Rule for consultation

Traffic Control Devices Rule released for consultation

The Land Transport Safety Authority is calling for submissions on a draft rule covering traffic signs, signals, road markings and other devices used to instruct road users.

The draft Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices (54002) was released for public consultation today, with submissions closing on 22 April 2003.

The rule aims to ensure that traffic control devices are uniform in appearance and are used consistently throughout New Zealand. It establishes minimum standards for traffic control devices and specifies who may authorise, install or remove them.

The rule proposes to give road controlling authorities more accountability for traffic management and more scope to take local conditions into account when installing or removing traffic control devices.

Specific changes are proposed to increase the consistency of road markings on multi-lane roundabouts, requiring all traffic entering or leaving the roundabout to follow a clearly marked path in order to reduce crashes.

Questions and answers on the Traffic Control Devices Rule and submission forms are available from the LTSA website, www.ltsa.govt.nz. Detailed information is available from http://www.ltsa.govt.nz/consultation/traffic-control-devices/index.html Copies of the draft rule can be ordered from the LTSA Help Desk, on 0800 699 000.
