State highway control manual

The full State highway control manual (SHCM) (SM012) is available online and remains meeting contract obligations.

To provide better user access, it has also been reformatted by consolidating subject matter. This helps by making information quicker to find and allows for faster updating.

A full topic index is included as part 1 so content is fully referenced to help in user navigation.

Part 3 of the Manual has been updated to include the new policy on the operation of drones on state highways [PDF, 935 KB]. New versions of Part 3: asset management and Part 1: index, have replaced the previous sections in the table below with the new policy included.
