Consultation description

Seeking view on the proposed changes to practices and regulations governing the use and maintenance of traffic signs. The major changes are proposal to:

  • reduce the number of traffic signs needing special authorisation by prescribing signs that have come into common use
  • permit the use of portable pedestrian crossing equipment at road works and to provide portable standalone pedestrian facilities • prescribe the existing non-prescribed legend ‘average speed check’, to bring these systems into line with existing fixed-point camera signing

Further information

The consultation document and the draft impact assessment have been updated from those originally issued on 17 September 2009.

The closing date for this consultation was extended to 24 December 2009. The consultation document has been revised to clarify the proposals for savings for signs that are being withdrawn (page 17).

The impact assessment was revised to:

  • include the Traffic Signs (Temporary Obstructions) (Amendment) Regulations 2010 in the title
  • reflect the fact that the draft statutory instruments apply to Scotland as well as England and Wales

No changes have been made to the draft statutory instruments or to the consultation proposals.
