Detail of outcome

As outlined in the Department for Transport’s (DfT’s) response, the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions (TSRGD) have been significantly restructured. The changes allow a wider range of signs to be available at local councils’ disposal. The revisions also give local authorities freedom to remove sign clutter by keeping signing to the minimum necessary. The new TSRGD will minimise DfT involvement in signing schemes, acknowledging that councils are best placed to know what signing is suitable for their roads.

Detail of feedback received

We received 442 responses (273 of those online) which included responses from 154 local authorities. These have been analysed in our final consultation response document.

Consultation description

We are inviting views on the revised Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions (TSRGD) 2015. The draft has been put together following intensive consultation with stakeholders over the last few years.

The traffic signs policy review began in September 2008. It culminated in the policy paper ‘Signing the way’ that set out a policy framework which retained national consistency for traffic signing, while allowing flexibility to meet local needs.

Since the summer 2012, we have been focussing on preparing a revised Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions (TSRGD) 2015 which will incorporate the regulatory and presentational improvements for signage recommended in ‘Signing the way’. These revisions will provide greater flexibility and cut costs for local authorities and make a significant contribution to red tape challenge.
