Policies, specifications, standards and guidelines to be followed in the development of traffic control systems for the highway system in British Columbia for the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.

Core Documents

Current standards for traffic control in British Columbia.

In 2019, the 2015 Interim Traffic Management Manual for Work on Roadways will be used for all new work on ministry roadways. It is being phased in over a three year period (2016-2019). This gives users time to update procedures, temporary traffic control equipment and resources. It gives time to develop training plans. Until 2019, it will be the governing requirement for ministry work only when called for within contract Special Provisions.
