Signing and Lining

 Details of concern:

Appropriate visibility of warning signs is essential to ensure road users are aware of approaching hazards. Report over growing vegetation blocking road signs via Gloucestershire County Council report it page

  

Road markings can effectively convey information and safety requirements to road users that may not always be possible to communicate by using upright signs. 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.

Request road markings to be refreshed via Gloucestershire County Council report it page

  

Warning signs are used to alert drivers to potential danger ahead. They indicate a need for special caution by road users and may demand a reduction in speed or some other manoeuvre.  Appropriate warning signs can greatly enhance road safety.

To be most effective, however, they should be used sparingly. Frequent use of signs to warn of conditions which are readily apparent tends to bring them into disrepute and can make them ineffective. In the first instance please contact your local councillor, parish or town council who is in regular contact with the highways authority.
