4-5. Placing HRPT
Once the plan is written, the HTD manages its implementation through its field
offices--the HRTP. The HRPT ensues that--
Convoys/vehicles abide by the traffic circulation plan.
Rules of the road are implemented.
Convoys move as scheduled.
Diversions are coordinated, as required.
The purpose of the HRPT is to implement the highway regulation plan. The
Purpose of HRPT
HRPT monitors and reports the progress of convoys and MSR conditions to the
TAMCA HTD. The HRPT is placed at critical points along the MSR such as--
Where two or more streams of traffic converge.
The HRPT also acts as liaison between the convoy commanders and the MCO.
The HRPT relays instructions from the convoy commanders concerning route
changes, halts or diversions. These teams also perform traffic control measures
when MPs are unavailable. In cases where a HN exercises highway regulation
you may use the HRPT in a liaison role with the regulating HN agency.
