Roads and Maritime Services uses the Austroads Guide to Traffic Management and Australian Standards AS 1742, 1743 & 2890 as its primary technical references in the traffic area.
A Roads and Maritime Supplement has been developed for each Part of the Guide to Traffic Management and relevant Australian Standard.
The Supplements document any mandatory Roads and Maritime Services practice and any complementary guidelines which need to be considered.
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.
NOTE: All RTA traffic related documents which were current on the 1 November 2011 will still apply until they have either been replaced by a Roads and Maritime Services document or superseded.
