Engineering and traffic management advice

Engineering matters in relation to road safety are the responsibility of Traffic Management Advisors (TMAs) who work within the Safer Roads team and act as the focal point for professional advice and police representation in relation to current and proposed highway schemes, highway and traffic legislation and safety matters.

Traffic Management Advisors are responsible for:

  • Identifying sites / routes where engineering works are required or should be considered by the responsible local authority or highways agency, and working with those agencies to achieve positive casualty reductions.
  • Acting as the primary liaison point between operational policing teams across Warwickshire and West Mercia, and county, district and parish councils who bring forward or seek assistance in the resolution of highway related issues.
  • Representing the chief constables in respect of statutory consultations, including Traffic Regulation Orders, planning applications with a highways related aspect, safety audits, road engineering matters, and post-collision audit visits for KSI (killed or seriously injured) collisions.
  • Providing consultation on the motorway network across both force areas, working with Highways England and the Central Motorway Police Group.
  • In consultation with internal and external partners, TMAs will provide road safety advice in relation to road events, contingency planning, major building development and issues brought forward by partners.
