Roads and Maritime Services (previously the Roads and Traffic Authority) produces two types of traffic management related technical reference documents which are complementary to the Austroads Guide to Traffic Management and the Australian Standards AS1742, 1743 & 2890 which are Roads and Maritime Services primary reference material.
The first type of complementary material is technical manuals which are reference documents dealing with specific topics (e.g. Pay Parking). The second type of complementary material is technical notes (known as Technical Directions) which detail new practice, or update existing practice, not shown in current Roads and Maritime Services manuals.
NOTE: All RTA traffic related documents which were current on the 1 November 2011 still apply until they have either been replaced by a Roads and Maritime Services document or superseded.
This register allows you to find details and electronic copies of all our current technical manuals and Technical Directions.
NB: Electronic copies are accessed from the foot of each listing.
Roads and Maritime Services has Supplements for the Austroads Guide to Traffic Management and Australian Standards AS 1742, 1743 & 2890, which document any mandatory Roads and Maritime Services practice.
Roads and Maritime Services Supplements must be referred to prior to using any reference material.
If any conflict arises, Roads and Maritime Services Supplements, the Austroads Guides and the Australian Standards are to prevail.
This register also provides a simple listing of our superseded technical manuals and Technical Directions
Please note that this register is continually being updated.
