Traffic management (T.M.) allows pedestrians and vehicles to move around a live carriageway safely according to certain conditions such as; Roadworks, Heavy Transport or Large events. The speed of road and density of pedestrian usage all pay a part in the level of Traffic Management applied to the construction phase. Where necessary for temporary traffic management, road speeds will be reduced to increase safety around danger areas, additionally, working widths will be implemented as a safe boundary to enforce a safe and controlled site by giving separation to workers and traffic.
Transoft Solutions offers additional traffic management software programs:
For most traffic management measures due to road construction work, traffic management software is used to ensure safety of the road construction workers and for the traffic that is using the roads. Besides safety, it is also essential to make sure that the flow of traffic is slowed down as less as possible.
Traffic Management factors taken into consideration are:
• Scheme size and speed of road, which will all impact on working zones.
• Where necessary, road speeds will be reduced to increase safety around danger
areas and working widths will be implemented as a safe boundary to enforce a
safe and controlled site.
• Traffic management is also in place to protect workers while on–site and as per
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
• The Health and Safety at Work (NI) order 1978 which require all clients, employers
and employees to establish and maintain safe systems of work.
Line Design Pro – Road Surface Marking
Line Design Pro UK is an advanced, BIM level 2, road surface marking software, optimised for the United Kingdom. Intelligent road markings and traffic calming measures are easily designed using grip editable road markings. All markings are automatically quantifiable for costing purposes using automatic quantification. In traffic management, Line Design Pro is used to design different lane markings. These temporary lane markings can be designed as painted surface markings but also as Traffic Cones, Traffic Cylinders or temporary Road Studs.
Sign Design Pro – Traffic Sign Design
Sign Design Pro UK is an advanced, Level 2 BIM, Road Sign Design software that is optimised for the United Kingdom. Our signage traffic management software lets you create custom signs within minutes or you can pick any existing signs from the huge 2D and 3D sign library. Civil3D® users can easily add 3D sign designs as Sign Design Pro can produce BIM corridor schemes with a single button press. In traffic management, the software is mainly used to safely place and design road construction signs.
AutoTURN® is a Vehicle Swept Path Analysis software that is used to confidently analyze road and site design projects, including traffic management projects like road maintenance or construction. AutoTURN is the most trusted swept path analysis software worldwide and used by many of the biggest engineering firms. With a large number of vehicle libraries and constant development, AutoTURN can be considered as the most advanced Swept Path Analysis software in the world. The software is also widely used in Traffic Management projects. When construction work influences the route a vehicle takes or influences the road size, AutoTURN is used to learn how vehicles, buses, trucks, etc. navigate on the new route and if they can safely navigate them without conflicts.
