this, apparently, is no longer done because "no one" understood what it meant.

That would make sense. It is quite a redundant practice when you think about it... directional signage would do the trick, surely.

We cannot allow this thread to fall off the first page!

The end of the SE Freeway crosses the Murray River at Murray Bridge.

when the CLEM7 opens in brisbane, there will be shiteloads of massive gantry sign photo opportunities. they are currently covered with tunnel advertising. the poles holding some of them up are enormous.

The gantry at the end of the bruce highway (gateway motorway and Gympie Road Arterial) is some shocking cover plating, such special consistency.

The tailgating one is interesting, you're meant to keep at least 2 chevrons apart. Too most people that just seems to mean proving enough space that someone will just bloody cut in on you.

Somebody has got their crossroads mixed up (road plate name should be 'Cabramatta Road' - Cumberland Hwy is the through route).

How long has that sign been up?

If that's the case, it proves that drivers do not take much notice of signage. An error of this type would be amended fairly quickly you'd imagine.

It wasn't amended because I hadn't posted a picture until now

There was a similar one at North Ryde which was mysteriously fixed a couple of weeks after I posted a photo of the ****-up...

You should send them to the local paper.
