Welcome to the first Traffic Management at Roadworks newsletter of 2019.
We hope all companies have had a safe and successful first quarter.
Traffic Controllers contacting RNOC prior to working on State roads shall be concise and specific with their advice/request. The controller shall advise of the:
– Direction of works
– Lane closed (Verge or median)
– Duration of works
– Contact person & number
Over 85 companies have certificates expiring prior to October 2019. You are reminded to reapply to the scheme prior by the 10th May in order to leave us with sufficient time to review your application and issue accreditation.
We cannot guarantee that applications received after this date will be processed in time.
