Below are some resources to assist in ensuring that all road users, including people on bikes, are accommodated during construction.

Note the conscious use of the broader phrase "works on road", rather than "road works".


Department of Transport and Main Roads[edit]

These Works on Roads fact sheets summarise information which highlights road operation issues that should be considered when preparing and implementing Traffic Management Plans (TMPs). Includes a document Cyclists at road works (PDF, 730 KB)


National Heavy Vehicle Regulator[edit]

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) is Australia’s independent regulator for all heavy vehicles. "We were established in 2013 as an independent statutory authority pursuant to the Heavy Vehicle National Law. Our vision is to have: A safe, efficient and productive heavy vehicle industry serving the needs of Australia."

Under Safety, Accreditation & Compliance, there is a section on Safety Management Systems. This section states "The executive officer of a business conducting transport activities has additional and specific responsibilities to take reasonable steps to ensure transport activities are conducted safely, eliminating or minimising hazards and risks."
