Traffic Management Plan

Harwich International Port has developed a comprehensive Traffic Management Plan to help ensure the safety of all port users, and to comply with current Health and Safety legislation.

The plan covers 3 main areas:

Safe Driver - The document covers port drivers' health, training and competency

Safe Vehicle - Areas covered include vehicle design, maintenance and appropriate safety features

Safe site - The majority of the plan concentrates on this area and covers adequate site planning and traffic management to ensure drivers and pedestrians circulate safely.

The Traffic Management Plan details routes for LGV traffic, both driver accompanied and unaccompanied, import and export movements.  It also covers non LGV traffic and pedestrian routes.  The measures to control all traffic are detailed within the plan, including highway standard signage and road markings, speed limits, traffic calming measures and the use of traffic marshals to control areas during busy times.

Detail of road surface management, repair and drainage are captured within the plan, as is the action to be taken in an emergency situation or during adverse weather conditions.

If customers or interested parties have any questions or require further information, please contact: enquiries@harwich.co.uk
