Traffic signs and road markings

Warning signs

Warning signs help drivers identify the less obvious road hazards such as side roads, bends and animal movements.

Direction signs

Direction signs are used to help control flows but cannot be used to pin point individual businesses.

Keep clear lines

Keep clear lines are used to help identify and protect private accesses and driveways - they can only extend across the full width of the access and cannot be used on the opposite side of the road.

Disabled person's parking bays

Disabled person's parking bays are used to provide assistance to disabled drivers who are reliant upon the public highway for their own parking needs - these are advisory markings that seek the assistance of other drivers but cannot be legally enforced.

Junction markings

Junction markings are mainly used to where a minor road junctions with major routes - we try to not use them within residential estates as this can lead to increased traffic speeds.

Centre lines

Centre lines can help provide guidance for movement along the highway as well as identify various hazards and where overtaking is dangerous or illegal.
