Traffic Engineers for Events
For any projects, whether they be new buildings, construction or even events, if there is even a possibility of impact on traffic flow then it is essential to have guidance from an expert in traffic management. No matter how long the impact may be, to comply with essential workplace safety, to avoid any issues a traffic planner must be at least consulted. When running events, there is always an impact on traffic of some sort; whether it be attendees, workers, construction of event infrastructure or even the surrounding regular traffic. Often with events, there are vehicles along with machinery, often quite large and heavy, that will be moving around. Reversing, loading, unloading- these situations if not managed correctly can pose a danger to workers, participants, attendees and those volunteering. With so many events happening around the city and the outer suburbs, working with an expert Traffic Engineer in Sydney before, like the team at TTPA, can help you put together a plan that will manage any potential risks. The “bump in” and the “bump out” phases are where there is often the most risk involved. A traffic planner will advise you to restrict pedestrian access, which is often easier at the beginning but can be more of an issue during the bump out phase. Having a plan put together by a Traffic Engineer in Sydney to mitigate and manage any potential risks will ensure that your event not only complies with workplace safety but will be a safer event for all involved.
Planning for Events
Working with the company that is recognised as one of the top companies that employs highly experienced Traffic Engineers in Sydney, TTPA will have every aspect of traffic planning and management for your event covered. We aim to separate traffic routes between vehicles and pedestrians and to ensure they run as efficiently as possible.

Safety is paramount, so signs will be required to be in place to indicate all areas; from parking spaces, restricted access, informing of speed limits and other areas that need to be made aware of. Drop off zones, sufficient waiting space, making sure there is adequate access and facilities for disable patrons and ensuring that loading areas are fashioned in a way that there is clear visibility of all other users. These are just some of the plans that Traffic Engineers in Sydney that work for TTPA manage traffic for events and just looking at this list of requirements with the knowledge that this is not even half of the plans that need to be laid out, it shows just how important consulting with traffic planners for your next event is.
