Traffic Control - Sydney: Worksite Safety on Sydney Roads
Traffic control for Sydney worksites is required if there is potential for impeding road and footpath users. With our up-to-date brand of sound traffic management, we keep roadway worksites in the Greater Sydney metropolitan area, safe and legal. Sydney’s roads include highly congested city streets, leafy suburban thoroughfares and modern freeways.

The Sydney Challenge
As the first European settlement in Australia, Sydney has a rich and complex history. Equally rich and complex is its road system, a sprawling network of motorways and residential streets. Developed organically alongside the original colony, it’s no surprise that Sydney’s roads have rarely been able to keep up with the demands of modern usage.
Although many projects have been staged to expand and simplify its roads, the Sydney CBD and surrounding suburbs are still hotbeds of traffic congestion. With such high traffic demands to consider, Sydney traffic control is a challenge which requires skill, experience, and dedication. For a safe and successful project, your traffic planner must be familiar with Sydney’s unique and demanding motoring conditions– and that means TCMAP.
At TCMAP, we have the experience you need to minimise risk and maximise efficiency. Whether your project is construction, an event, or emergency management, you won’t be disappointed with our qualified, professional traffic controllers and planners.
- Staff: On site traffic controllers who are prepared for Sydney CBD/suburban conditions
- Documents: Professional Traffic Guidance Schemes (formerly Traffic Control Plan or TCP) to meet local council standards, as well as any supporting documentation that may be required. These will be required to obtain Sydney council permits for your project.
- Support: Expert advice throughout the planning, application and implementation processes
Don’t get stung by council regulations
There are 30 local government areas in greater metropolitan Sydney, each with specific laws and requirements for road and lane closure applications. Different permits are required for different types of work or events, and RMS (Roads and Maritime Services- formerly RTA) regulations also apply. So if you are planning a project which requires lane or road closure, you’ll need to be familiar with all of the regulations that apply to your work area.
Local council regulations typically include:
- Which roads are considered “major” or “minor”
- When important roads can be closed (for example, only on Sundays) and for how long
- Which public services you need to advise (police, emergency services etc)
- Whether you must notify residents who will be affected (letterbox drops, newspaper advertisements, etc.)
- The fee schedule for closures and other activities
Applications which don’t meet local council regulations can be dismissed automatically, so making a mistake wastes both your time and money. Then, once approved, failure to implement the plan correctly may incur additional fees and penalties.
Fortunately, TCMAP have the Sydney traffic control experience to keep you clear of these costly errors. Our end-to-end service covers every step of the traffic management process. From planning through to application and implementation, we will be your safety net.
