Direction signs help you to find and follow the road you want, or direct you to the car park, station ahead.

All important traffic routes have direction signs, most are blue with a white border, but signs on expressways are to be replaced by green.

Most trunk roads have route numbers, which enable motorists to quickly find the most convenient and direct route when driving from one district to another. Route number shields are included on direction signs to guide motorists.

It is often difficult or impossible to change your mind and hesitation is dangerous. Understanding the direction signing system, knowing which route you need to take and following direction signs in good time will enable you to drive more safely and avoid unnecessary driving.

Direction signs will be found on the approach to and at junctions. Those on the approach to junctions are 'advance direction signs'
