Roadworks traffic management
In line with State Government legislation, the City of Belmont has an agreement with Main Roads Western Australia to oversee the Traffic Management legislative requirements within its own geographical area.
The City of Belmont needs to grant approval for works held on or within the road reserves across the City. If you have any works planned for roads or road reserves within the City of Belmont, in most cases you will need to create a Traffic Management Plan before your works can be approved.
Traffic Management Plans
A Traffic Management Plan for roadworks needs to be prepared in line with the ‘Traffic Management Works on Roads Code of Practice’, which states, “Any party undertaking work on a road shall prepare a Traffic Management Plan (TMP) that adequately provides for the safety of workers and road users while maintaining an adequate level of service to road users
Roads controlled by Main Roads
If your planned works are to be held on or affecting roads controlled by Main Roads Western Australia, you need to apply for approval from them directly. You can find a list of these roads on the Main Roads Western Australia website
Roads within the City of Belmont
If your planned works are to be held on or affecting roads within the City of Belmont, you will need to apply for approval and submit a Traffic Management Plan.
Please note, approval of your Traffic Management Plan does not mean you have permission for works to be carried out within the City’s road reserves. You may need other approvals from the City such as Infrastructure Services Clearance or Out of Hours Construction Noise permits.
You will need to:
- Contact the City’s Traffic Management team before you prepare your Traffic Management Plan to discuss your plans and the details you will need to include in your plan;
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org to submit your Traffic Management Plan;
- Allow a minimum of 10 working days for review and approval.
There are no fees associated with submitting a Traffic Management Plan for approval.
