Traffic and street signs

If you have discovered a broken traffic light, sign or signal please report it to us so we can arrange to repair it.

For example

  • Traffic signs include all and any signs giving directional information. Traffic signs are usually set on poles or gantries by the side of the road, or in the central reservation of a dual carriageway.
  • Traffic lights control the flow of vehicles on the road. Traffic lights are the familiar "Red-Amber-Green" displays set on poles or overhead gantries, most often at road junctions.
  • Pedestrian crossing lights comprise a set of traffic lights, as well as a display indicating via red and green lights when it is safe for pedestrians to cross the road at a pelican crossing. 
  • Belisha beacons are yellow flashing lights on top of black-and-white striped poles, placed by a pedestrian crossing.
  • Illuminated bollards are small pillars which are lit from inside, and are often placed in the centre of the road or at road junctions and often display a directional arrow indicating to drivers which side of the bollard they should pass on.
  • Driver information signals include any other signs, either temporary or permanent, which give information or instructions to road users such as temporary traffic lights or road signs, or automatic signs which tell the road user how fast their vehicle is travelling.
