    The more people that attend one of the IHE courses on the subject, the sooner the issue can be drawn in to the regularised system it should be. Much comes down to pay and conditions, as well as loss of the signs to another user – or an HGV’s wheels.

    As I’m sure you know, whereas TSM Chapter 8 is advisory, the Red Book carries statutory authority under the New Roads & Street Works Act.

    In the first instance, I’d like to see the Red Book being consistently enforced. Currently some highways authorities are very good at doing this.

    The problem with TTM is the interpretation of Red book and chapter 8, so many gray areas.
    The TM industry has always been its own worst enemy and unfortunately cost is forefront for a lot of company’s

    Do you ever pass roadworks, and think to yourself, “why have they got the Temporary Traffic Management so wrong?”

    I mean to say, we all make mistakes occasionally, but there is a huge variation in TTM quality between different contractors. There is also a large degree of disparity in highways authorities inspection regimes.

    Does the panel think there is a better approach than the current, “if there is an accident, hang the last TM operative to attend site out to dry?”
