30kph Temporary Speed Limit (TSL) signs are in place at a worksite on Tennyson St between Colombo St and Eastern Tce. However, there are only 30kph/50kph signs at the start (18 Tennyson St) and end (123 Tennyson St) of the worksite, a distance of about 610m, with no repeater signs between them. This seems inconsistent with the requirement in the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management (CoPTTM) Section C4.4.1 Repeater signs that states: “TSL signs must be repeated at intervals no greater than 400m, as a reminder to road users of the maximum speed”. Does this mean that the approved Traffic Management Plan (TMP) is not consistent with CoPTTM (Section A7.3.1)? And does this affect the legality of the Police trying to enforce the 30kph Temporary Speed Limit here (Section C4.3.1)?
