What Does a Traffic Controller Do?
A traffic controller directs the flow of vehicles and machinery on roads and other work sites.
Working in this role involves more than just holding a stop/slow bat such as:

- Setting up signage and safety barriers

These roles are needed in the construction and road building and maintenance industries.
Learning how to complete these tasks requires training through the nationally recognised training program.
