Construction, film, and special event projects that use Vancouver streets, laneways, sidewalks, bicycle facilities, and other transporation infrastructure are required to control traffic through work and event zones.
Private contractors, utility companies, and our construction crews must meet traffic control standards. These standards are:
- Set by the BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and the BC Motor Vehicle Act External website, opens in new tab
- Monitored by us
- Enforced by WorkSafe BC
We review traffic control plans and traffic management plans. WorkSafeBC may require additional traffic control documentation for construction or special events.
