Traffic Plans

We provide council-approved traffic management plans.

If you’re doing work on or near the roadside, even if you’re just moving your cows, chances are you’ll need a local council approved Traffic Management Plan. Give us a call to discuss and we’ll advise you if you need one, prepare one if you do and submit it to the council for you.

Once approved, the council will send it back to us and we can get things organised for you. You can concentrate on digging your trench or rounding up your cows. It’s one less thing for you to worry about. Easy.

Our traffic management planners have years of experience and will design a setup that meets the goals of any traffic management job – ease and efficiency of work to minimise your cost while keeping the public and your staff safe onsite.


To become qualified to work on the road, you must attend and pass an NZTA approved training course and assessment. Spray Marks Traffic have an in-house trainer, mentor and assessor with 10 years of practical industry experience and can provide NZTA approved training courses and assessment in Christchurch and Ashburton, or South Island wide by arrangement.
We can deliver in-house training to meet your specific group requirements and can also provide vehicles and resources to make it happen, click here to find out more or contact us today.
