The chapter includes sections dealing with the positioning and mounting of signs. It will contain advice on the design and use of directional signs, and also other informatory signs such as home zone signs. Due to the amount of work required to complete chapter 2, it is intended that interim advice on individual topics will be made available as and when completed. These include prohibited turns, waiting and loading restrictions, bus and cycle lanes etc. There is also a comprehensive section dealing with the signing of speed limits. They indicate a need for special caution by road users and may require a reduction in speed or some other manoeuvre. This reprinted edition includes 4 minor amendments and addition of Appendix A, note 7. They have the advantage that they can often be seen when a verge-mounted sign is obscured, and, unlike such signs, they can provide a continuing message. This chapter provides technical advice on designing traffic light junctions, crossings, and other types of traffic control.http://armgonline.com/userfiles/california-nvra-manual.xml

It has been much awaited and despite delays affecting the DfT it came out during the election period (we weren’t supposed to know but these things slip out). Now it’s formally out let’s review the best bits. This means that urban areas are no longer to be seen as just ribbons of traffic dominating the streetscape and should be redesigned to allow better movement of pedestrians and cyclists, who on average are the economic drivers of urban areas. Others have written entire dissertations on this, all I’ll say is Google it. Likewise the Deregulation Act 2015 has removed the requirement to notify the Secretary of State so several of these legal hurdles that were also used as obstructions by “do nothing” authorities are out of the way. The only hurdle now, typically, is money. Likewise there is finally acknowledgement that lane widths between 3.2 and 4m are a bad design feature if you have high volumes of cyclists. Likewise, warning signs are not necessary if the signals are plainly visible. This is a particular bug bear of mine, as often the warning signs obscure the signals themselves.http://www.dailysundry.com/userfiles/california-hydrology-manual.xml There is no legal requirement to place warning signs so unless it is absolutely necessary, don’t bother. Locals know the signals are new, and outsiders won’t know any different. Don’t bother putting up the signs, they won’t come back down and they’ll clutter up the street. While waiting at a junction in bad weather, a driver may be frustrated but is generally warm and dry. A frustrated, cold and wet pedestrian is more likely to take risks. A crossing that requires them to deviate off their desire line further than they consider acceptable is also unlikely to be used. It is the structural foundation of active travel design, and to ignore it in favour of motorist convenience is why we have such endemic congestion as people drive instead of walk or cycle short distances. But if you don’t subscribe to active travel anyway none of this is relevant and carry on as normal. Personally I’ve always liked green for cycle routes. I will write a separate blog post about further improvement to cycling signs and future proposals for the DfT to consider (or most likely reject out of hand because of the expense and difficulty in changing everything over now). Diagrams showing how cycle lanes should continue through crossings and so on are finally included. It also says to stop using guard rails unless absolutely necessary as well, given they have no proven safety benefit and just encourage risk taking by pedestrians (see quote above).

Moreover, it seriously reduces light to provide a temporary sign to warn of a temporary transmission through the retroreflective medium.Direction 38 requires such signs to be removed as soon as the hazard has passed, and in any case within six months. 1.45 A sign prescribed in the Regulations must be used where the warning can be conveyed by such a sign. Otherwise it may be designed following the requirements specified in regulation 53. The back of a temporary sign must be grey, black or in a non- reflective metallic finish, as for almost all other signs (direction 42). The use of a yellow or other coloured back is unsightly, visually intrusive and unlawful. 9. Mandatory requirements are set out in the current version of the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions; nothing in the manual can override these. The advice is given to assist authorities in the discharge of their duties under section 122 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, but it is for traffic authorities to determine what signing they consider necessary to meet those duties.References to “the Secretary of State“ should therefore be interpreted as referring to the Secretary of State for Transport, the Department for Regional Development (Northern Ireland), the Scottish Government or the Welsh Government as appropriate. Reference to a diagram number or to a Schedule is a reference to a diagram or schedule in those Regulations. In Northern Ireland the relevant legislation is the Traffic Signs Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1997. Diagram and regulation numbering occasionally differs in the Northern Ireland Regulations; this is noted in the text where appropriate. Not all signs referred to in the text are included in the latter Regulations. References to directions are not applicable in Northern Ireland; where these are mentioned, advice should be sought from the Department for Regional Development's Roads Service Headquarters.Care should be taken to ensure that no non-prescribed sign is used unless it has been authorised in writing. Failure to do so may leave an authority open to litigation. Except in the case of certain signs to indicate temporary obstructions or placed by the police in an emergency, signs may be placed only by or with the permission of the traffic authority.They indicate a need for special caution by road users and may require a reduction in speed or some other manoeuvre.To be most effective, however, they should be used sparingly. Their frequent use to warn of conditions which are readily apparent tends to bring them into disrepute and detracts from their effectiveness. Unjustified signing should not be used at individual locations simply in response to complaints from the public. Care should be taken to ensure that a route is treated consistently, especially where it crosses the boundary between two traffic authorities. These also illustrate the permitted variants of symbols and show the correct layout of supplementary plates not illustrated in the Regulations.See also para 1.43 and section 7.By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.
