Traffic Control APOs for Road Works.
Road works are carried out to facilitate the upgrading, maintenance or installation of road facilities or utilities beneath the roads. When construction companies carry out road works, proper traffic and safety controls must be in place to minimise traffic congestion and inconvenience.
Traditionally, traffic control and marshalling can only be done by Auxiliary Police Officers (APOs) from Certis Cisco or Aetos. But effective April 2015, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) has authorised security agencies to provide traffic marshals for road work traffic regulation duties. [ Specifications by LTA → ]
Authorisation of Security Officers (ASOs) to Regulate Traffic for Road Works
Security agencies must apply for LTA authorisation on behalf of their authorised security officers, or ASOs, to perform traffic regulation duties for road works. These officers must meet these minimum requirements:
- Possess the relevant qualification to regulate traffic (i.e. successfully completed the Conduct Crowd and Traffic Control training course);
- Be licensed and trained by the Police Licensing & Regulatory Department under the Private Security Industry Act; and
- Be employed by a security agency licensed by the Police Licensing & Regulatory Department under the Private Security Industry Act.
With the above pre-requisites fulfilled and the requisite gear and safety attire, the security officer may regulate traffic for these road configurations in place of Certis APOs or Aetos APOs.
