ˆˆ Is it even official /the one in Albania?/ Because to me, it looks like distances e.g. displayed in Eiffel Tower.

Five on one...

(last French signal before Somport tunnel)




By the way...

- Canfranc, Jaca and Sabiñanigo are in the same road. Why aren't they in green instead of white?
- Why isn't E-07 written?

Green routes in France, even if they refers to the whole route, actually I think they mark main nodes of the network. So, like in other French trunk roads, main nodes (in the Spanish standard, provincial capitals) are signposted in green, and the other minor destinations along the road are signposted in complementary white panels.

The lack of the E7 rectangle is strange. Usually France is pretty strict when signaling European routes.

Jaca could be a node too...
If you are thinking in Pamplona destination or so, you may quit at Jaca

Yes, maybe.

As far I know, primary nodes for the Spanish national roads network are the provincial capitals, and then, other cities or towns where several national roads intersect are considered secondary nodes. But that's true that at some point before the 2000's some non-provincial capitals were signposted like primary nodes (Bailén, Talavera or Villalba). Jaca could be part of this group.

Anyway, this French sign is pretty consistent with the Spanish standard which is not that common in signs indicating foreign destinations.

We have a counterpant at the other end of the tunnel, a sign with Urdos (the first village after the border), Oloron and Pau. But up to there, it's all France.

I believe they corrected it to show actual road distances.

By the way, in French, the exonym for Zaragoza is Saragosse, and not Sarragosse...

In Zadar, we even sign countries. Italija means Italy.

In the north of Croatia there are signs for "Bosna i Hercegovina" instead of signing the Bosnian border cities. On the other hand, I have not seen signs for "Srbija", "Mađarska" or "Crna Gora".

I didn't even seen a montenegrin city on a sign yet, except for "Herceg-Novi" on the picture that you've shown me once.

this "Italija" thing is not what we look for no this thread. all ferries leave at Zadar port leave to Italy from the same dock, so this is universal sign (although there is only line to Ancona, but there could be possibly Pescara too, like in Split).
according to other countries, I remember sign for Austria just like that at D2 (relict from Yugoslav times), and there were signs to "Mađarska", also along D2 and D5.

And Tivat (at Čilipi airport).

Never seen "Austrija" in HR (except Graz and an A-oval near Varaždin) which is not a neighbouring country after all , but there are still signs "Avstrija" (and Italija ) in Slovenia.

To BiH: As far as I know there is not any sign in Croatia signing for a city in Republika Srpska (except Banja Luka).

There's this oddity near Ivanica - https://www.google.pl/maps/@42.63119...EFCxWecSyw!2e0 - which is completely illogical as the border crossing is about 4km away, not 27km away.

But I think there are some signs, such as Neum (which isn't even mentioned as being in BiH). Brcko is signed too for certain. I'm not sure about destinations in Republika Srpska, but a quick look on Street View seems to suggest that the HR signing policy is just to sign "BiH" with no mention of towns.

But if signing Trebinje really is a no-go, why not just sign the actual border crossing, or even just Ivanica?

A sign at that point for Mostar and Sarajevo could actually be quite useful.

Found Prijedor between Jasenovac and Uštica http://goo.gl/maps/7iVb7

I don't think there's any need to sign Gradiska because Stara Gradiska is obvious enough, I suppose.

I spotted this particular horror - Republika Bosna i Hercegovina, really? The country hasn't even existed for nearly 20 years...

Livigno (I) signed along Swiss main road no. 28. Border crossing is right to the right ...

Wow, now that's really awkward.

Poland. The very first example of directional signage to neighbouring country that lacks the names of insignificant border villages
