TAL 1/12: The Traffic Signs (Amendment) (No.2) Regulations and General Directions 2011

Read document description

The Traffic Signs (Amendment) (No.2) Regulations and General Directions 2011 (SI 2011 No. 3041) further amends the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002 (“TSRGD 2002” – SI 2002 No. 3113) and came into force on 30 January 2012. Copies of the new SI are available from TSO at a price of £27.25 each. In addition to SI 2011 No. 3041, this Traffic Advisory Leaflet also contains guidance relating to the other sets of amendment regulations listed below, which came into force since the introduction of TSRGD 2002. Therefore, in addition to the current editions of Traffic Signs Manual, this document should be read in conjunction with the listed SIs and associated Traffic Advisory Leaflets, by all those involved in designing and implementing traffic management schemes and in road traffic regulation generally. While this Traffic Advisory Leaflet is intended to assist readers, it is neither legal advice nor a substitute for reference to the relevant legislation - and should not be relied on as such.

Sideguards on heavy goods vehicles: assessing the effects on pedal cyclists injured by trucks overtaking or turning left: TRL (DOP 9/10)

Read document description

Transport for London (TfL) developed and published a Cycle Safety Action Plan that proposed a wide range of actions to improve cycle safety. These actions include, under the heading 'technology', working with the freight industry to identify the most cost-effective commercial vehicle safety measures that could be fitted either to new vehicles or to the existing fleet. The action specifically states that sideguards and motion sensors will be considered. This study has drawn together the findings of research literature, in particular three recent studies that consider heavy vehicle safety generally and/or sideguards specifically, and undertaken analysis of relevant accident data in order to inform consideration of the likely effectiveness of sideguards in terms of mitigating pedal cycle casualties in London and in GB as a whole.

Management of Electronic Traffic Equipment

Read document description

This Code of Practice is the first document within the UK which establishes a series of good practice policies and procedures, obtained from experts, on how to effectively manage the maintenance of fixed location electronic traffic control equipment. The growth of technology in the highways sector has led to improvements in congestion control and a reduction in carbon emissions. Adoption of the recommendations within this code will help local authorities achieve delivery of high quality services. This code will become the fourth code within the current suite of codes, and will sit alongside Well-lit Highways, Well-maintained Highways and the Management of Highway Structures.

Bus punctuality partnerships: guidance for local authorities and operators

Read document description

This guidance has been produced by DfT's Bus Punctuality Working Group, a stakeholder group set up to develop a more effective punctuality regime. It is informed by the experience of local authorities and bus operators around the country and offers a framework which local authorities and bus operators can use to work together to achieve results. It sets out why punctuality and reliability are important, and explains how a partnership approach can help to deliver high standards of punctuality. It contains examples of good practice which are already being used, together with a model which has been developed for use 'off the peg' or which can be adapted according to local circumstances, including a model data sharing agreement.
