Manage traffic at your event

Tiaki waka toko ake ki tō kaupapa whakahaere

Your event will need traffic management if it takes place on a road or will cause high traffic volumes and congestion. You may also need a road closure.

Contact us and ask to speak to an event facilitator to discuss your traffic management requirements.

Road closures

The majority of road closures need a Traffic Management Plan (TMP). A professional supplier can provide the plan. Find out who can design your TMP.

All road closures must be advertised to the public. We need to receive your application at least eight weeks before your event takes place.

Your event facilitator can provide help with this.


You need to pay any costs associated with road closures, traffic management and public notice advertising.
