Our experienced design department aim to provide a comprehensive solution to your traffic management logistical needs.
We provide traffic management drawings to suit any traffic management requirement from a simple lane closure, a two way traffic layout to a fully comprehensive traffic diversion operation. All our drawings meet the standards required by Chapter 8.
Our aim is to provide a solution that minimises disruption as far as possible for road users whilst taking into account the safety of pedestrians and the workforce.
If required we can liaise with the relevant authorities, contractors or subcontractors to provide traffic management drawings well in advance of any proposed works that could negate the need for lengthy site meetings
We have the capability to produce any size bespoke temporary traffic sign. We use industry standard plates and work within the Chapter 8 regulations – ‘Part 1: Design’.
The equipment we use is of a high standard; the Gerber Edge FX (Vinyl printer) and Gerber Edge GSX (Vinyl Cutter).
The vinyl we use can last between 3 – 5 years outdoors so although we use it for temporary purposes; it can also be used permanently if needed.
We have an array of materials and colours available which makes any job possible.
For large scale city centre schemes; individual traffic management drawings could be difficult to follow and therefore organising multi-utilities can become a nightmare.
We have the answer; out with the old drawing and in with the 3D video – a bird’s eye view of what your works will look like, before a spade hits the ground.
Imagine viewing the potential works from above, seeing it all from different angles weaving in and around the buildings and skyscrapers – all in 3D.
It is a great tool and will show what you want to do. It will remove any doubt from a client or councils mind and should give off a more optimistic view of what your works will bring to the city.
We have in place a site survey to design process which enables us to deliver full traffic management drawings to our clients within a 4 hour or next day window. During a site survey of your proposed site, we will collect all the information required including a sketch of the site and photographs via our GARD phone application. This information gets emailed to our dedicated CAD team who can start drawing up your traffic management needs straight away and deliver a swift turnaround of your drawing. GTM are committed to providing a first class service and this design facility helps us do just that.

Planning Applications for temporary road works / new road layouts sometimes need to demonstrate that the plan layout can accommodate the movement of vehicles. Designs are being challenged more and more by the planning authority who need to be confident that the proposed layout is fit for purpose, particularly for sites where room for vehicle manoeuvres is limited.
In order for the Local Authority to be confident that the design proposals can accommodate vehicle movements they can request a drawing showing the Swept Path Analysis of vehicles overlaid on the proposed site layout to demonstrate that the vehicles can manoeuvre safely and efficiently within the site layout. We use the latest Vehicle Tracking software to show vehicle swept path analysis using large vehicles including 16.5m (length) HGV.
For any swept path analysis requirements please contact us.
