Exciting times ahead for the Temporary Traffic Management (TTM) sector in New Zealand.
Our newly-formed TTM Industry Steering Group has convened its first meeting to collaboratively shape the future of TTM as we transition from CoPTTM to the NZGTTM. It has been a challenging journey to reach this point, with some stakeholders feeling apprehensive about the uncertainties surrounding the NZGTTM and the shift towards a less prescriptive framework. However, now that we are here, we must adopt a forward-looking mentality to ensure the best outcome for the sector and the safest outcome for road users and workers.
In the short term, the industry will not face immediate volatility. The formal publishing of the NZGTTM on the 27th of April 2023 is merely one step in a lengthy process of progressive transition involving multiple components of the TTM system to ensure stability.
In the coming months, there will be opportunities for learning and engagement through centrally and privately led webinars and roadshows supported by the ISG. This collaborative approach will keep the collective industry at the forefront of the transition and engagement process.
With the diverse and dedicated ISG group, we believe that by working together and engaging with all stakeholders, we can foster a collaborative and innovative environment that will ultimately benefit the entire TTM sector. We’re humbled by the opportunity to make a positive impact on the industry and are optimistic about the journey ahead. As we work to support the upcoming transition, we encourage everyone involved to share their thoughts, ideas, and concerns. Let’s work together to create a safer and more efficient TTM sector for all! ?
