A traffic control plan is an essential component of any cannabis garden. A good traffic control plan keeps unwanted visitors away and lets you know what's going on in your garden at any given time. Many people enjoy getting out their GPS devices and mapping out where they want their gardens to go. But before you get too excited about having a map of your garden, be sure to have someone else familiarize themselves with it first to make sure it won't cause problems down the road.
Traffic Management Plans (TMP) are developed to manage traffic flow at a site where construction work is being undertaken. There are two types of TMP; Site Specific Traffic Management Plan (SS-TMP); and General Roadway Traffic Management Plan (GRTMP). A typical SS-TMP includes road alignments, pedestrian crossings, bike paths, and cycle lanes. GRTMP, on the other hand, may cover an entire road network, including major intersections.
A SS-TMP is normally prepared by a design consultant who works closely with the client in developing specific measures to address their concerns. These plans should then be submitted to the relevant authority prior to starting any work. The authority can approve the plan following review, subject to conditions, or refuse to grant approval. If approved, a contract between the authority and the consulting engineer(s) may stipulate what additional requirements need to be met before the planning application can progress beyond the initial stage.
The purpose behind the preparation of an SS-TMP is to minimize disruption caused to users of the area by the changes brought about by the project. These traffic controllers make plans that can take many forms, depending on the type of work being done. In some instances they may be quite detailed, covering the movement of vehicles and pedestrians around the site, the use of temporary detours and vehicle parking arrangements.
In some cases, a GRTMP would be considered. Where a GRTMP is appropriate it could cover an entire road network. Generally speaking, these plans focus on the movement of vehicles. However, they can be tailored to meet the specific needs of a particular project. In addition, they are not always drawn up by consultants. Sometimes they are produced by engineers working directly for the relevant authority.
When driving on roads, especially at night, you have to be aware of obstacles ahead, including fallen trees, animals, and debris. Be extra cautious while traveling during rain and snow seasons. Remember to slow down when approaching curves, hills, cliffs, and narrow lanes.
