Streets for All : 7 Non standard signs and best use of standards

Traffic signs and markings cannot be varied from a prescribed type without the authorisation of the Secretary of State. However Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002 (TSRGD), offer Highway Authorities a great deal of scope in providing signs to suit sensitive environments, without the need for Department for Transport (DfT) approval. Guidance on the use of TSRGD can be found in the Traffic Sign Manual.

We are now (September 2017) consulting on revised Streets for All guidance. See our guidance consultations webpage for more details.

The consultation closes at 5pm on Thursday 9 November 2017.
