Signage and line marking

Council installs, maintains and renews signage and line marking and reflective markers across the region's road network. Types of signage include:

  • Regulatory signs such as stop and give way signs, speed limit signs and parking signs;
  • Warning signs advising of upcoming changes in driving situations - these are usually yellow;
  • Identification signs such as street and place name signs, and points of interest signs;
  • Directional signs advising of the direction and / or location of places or points of interest;
  • Information and educational signs; and
  • Temporary signs advising of short-term changes in conditions such as roadworks.

Most signs have a 7 to 10 year lifespan with the most common fault being fading and loss of reflectivity. Painted lines and symbols are periodically tested for reflectivity and are renewed on a multi-year program.

To report any signage or line marking issues
