Road Signs and Markings: Reviews

Volume 498: debated on Tuesday 27 October 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport when his Department last conducted a review of traffic signage rules. (294709)

The last review of traffic signing rules resulted in the current Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions, which came into force in January 2003. In September 2008 the Department for Transport announced the start of a root and branch review of traffic signing policy in Great Britain. The ongoing review has already led to a number of proposed regulatory amendments, on which we are currently consulting. We expect one of the final review outcomes to be a comprehensive package of revised regulations.
