Training takes at least four hours and can involve classroom, video and written instruction, administered by the contractor or an accredited organization. The labour ministry enforces compliance, she said.
Construction delays can lead to serious overheating problems in drivers, even those whose vehicles are air conditioned.
motorist grumbling besides taking local rush hours into account is what once seemed to be a tradition: employing attractive college students as TCPs.
He said construction contracts stipulate the lengths of traffic delays at sites such as the Trout Lake Road Puma Silver Shoes

intersection. Common sense dictates that flagmen would allow for differing traffic volumes in various directions and adjust the volume of traffic allowed through, he added.
So TCPs are trained workers implementing a traffic control plan, not just people intent of working on their tans and swatting mosquitoes.
What steams them is that the flagmen don't seem to be taking into account that at certain times of day there might be about 10 times as many vehicles going in one direction as in the other.
I felt that commuter pain firsthand recently.
MTO senior media liaison officer Emna Dhahak adds that flagmen more Puma Trainers With Ribbon Laces correctly called traffic control persons (TCPs) receive training governed by both the MTO and ministry of labour, according to construction regulation 213/91 and Ontario Traffic Manual Book 7, which is kept available at the construction site.
Drivers might find their boil reduced to a simmer if the TCP were some young person working her or his way through school (while working on his or her tan).
Few expect to sail through the construction zone during working hours without some slowdown. They're not complaining about the delay per se, which is usually quite short unless crews are blasting.
MTO says flagmen trained to make traffic flow s
It appeared to me that the amount of time allowed for traffic to go through was about the same for northbound and southbound, even though the traffic volumes were vastly different.
So, 100 metres backup in one direction, 3,500 metres in the other. Doesn't seem fair.
"Section 4 of Book 7 addresses issues such as speed and traffic volumes."
I pulled on to the highway at Sixth Line and came to a dead stop no more than half a kilo metre further north. On my map, Sixth Line is roughly four kilometres south of Trout Lake Road.
As delighted as most motorists are with improvements to the highways they travel on, the work required to make those roadways better isn't always popular.
Several dead stops of turnoff your engine duration later, and an equal number of bumper to bumper advances up the highway, alternating with convoys of southbound vehicles, found me listening to the 6 o'clock news when I finally passed through the construction zone.
Waiting their turn in the southbound lane were only about 10 vehicles, stretching back all of 100 metres from the flagman.
assured me the ministry investigates any complaint about construction zone flagging, so no doubt motorists' concerns have been passed along to the contractor. Call me the Frank Manzo of Sault North.
The temperature under the collar can seem especially hot when you're heading out of town to a cool lake or a cold beverage at your home or camp after a hard day of work in the city.
Do flagmen have to allow the same number of vehicles through in each direction? I wondered. Marie.
But the MTO reviews the traffic control setup, especially as it concerns motorist safety, at a prestart meeting and during the construction period, she added. And most contracts include clauses barring work during peak travel periods.
Such has been the condition of some of my friends and neighbours who have been arriving at a number of idyllic settings north of Sault Ste. Marie up to 45 minutes later than usual. The culprit is a road widening project at the intersection of Highway 17 and Trout Lake Road.
Legend has it that rush hour backups have extended well beyond Sixth Line, perhaps as far as Fifth Line (another three kilometres or so) or even to Fourth Line (two more).
