Experimental signs introduced on Sheffield road

A road in Sheffield is being used to test the effectiveness of new warning signs.

White lines have been removed from roads on the Wisewood estate to be replaced by warning signs and yellow and black road markings, making a change from the ordinary "give way" notices, according to the Sheffield Star.

The messages alert drivers to the fact that the area is now a 20mph zone.

Councillor Leigh Bramall, Sheffield Council cabinet member responsible for highways, told the news provider: "We welcome any comments on the scheme as we continue to monitor it. The markings at Wisewood are advisory and there to remind drivers of the changes."

The spokesperson added that "nobody" has priority at the crossroads, recommending drivers to travel slowly and with care.

It is essential that motorists check the signage of every area they pass through, especially as new driving limits could have been introduced.

As well as this, it is vital that any notices are clear to read, and the council is set to conduct a final review of them before committing to them for the long term.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801466588-ADNFCR
