Creating a worksite
Here's the guide to help you through the Worksite creation/submission process.
Creating a Traffic Management Plan (TMP)
A Traffic Management Plan (TMP) is worksite-specific plan that covers the design, implementation, maintenance and removal of temporary traffic management (TTM) measures while work or activity is carried out in the road corridor (road, footpath or berm).
Some Road Controlling Authorities (RCA) requires a Traffic Management Plan to be submitted alongside every Worksite application, so you will have to create and submit a TMP in that case. If there are minimal or no impact to the normal operations of the road corridor, you can select 'None' for the Traffic Impact field and 'Shoulder Only' for the Category field on the layout. The RCA will let you know if they need any additional information from you after submission.
Here’s our guide to the TMP application process.
Some Road Controlling Authorities require both the Worksite and Traffic Management Plan submitted separately before the application can be processed, so please make sure you check that that has been done.
You should then receive two emails, each informing you of your successful submission of the Worksite and TMP respectively. An email will also be sent to you when your application is approved or declined.
What should I do now my application’s declined, or if I need to make changes to a submitted application?
In the event that changes on a TMP or Worksite are required, you will need to create a revision to be able to do so.
To create a revision of a submitted or accepted Worksite, please click on the ‘Create Revision’ button in the footer of the Worksite.
To create a revision of a submitted or accepted Traffic Management Plan, please click on the ‘Create a revision’ link under the layouts section of the TMP.
What’s the status of my application? / How do I get in touch with the Road Controlling Authority?
Please first check that both the Traffic Management Plan and the Worksite it is linked to have been submitted (there should be an orange 'Submitted' label' beside the TMP or Worksite number at the top of the page
), as applications may not be processed until both have been submitted. If a Corridor Access Manager or Traffic Management Coordinator have been assigned to your Worksite/TMP applications, their details will be displayed in the RCA Assignee field on the Worksite or TMP view page (See screenshots below). You can contact them with those details, or leave a message in the Comment section on the application.
In the event that both the Worksite and TMP had been submitted, and no Corridor Access Manager/Traffic Management Coordinator have been assigned to your application yet, please contact us at [email protected] and we can have a look for you.
Why do I have to fill in so much information for a simple job?
We understand that the current application process can be quite onerous for simple one off applications for placing a skip or scaffolding for non-industry professionals, and are working on improving the application process for these use cases in the future. We thank you for your patience before that happens. But in the meantime, we will try our best to help you through the process through our FAQ page https://help.myworksites.co.nz/, or through our support desk at [email protected]
