Maybe they are temporary direction signs? You know, the ones they use when there are road works and there is a detour? That's the case in Romania (and other countries too as far as I can remember - Austria for instance uses very beautiful reflective yellow temporary signs).

No man, look at this pic, here you can see the beautiful yellow sign, there´s one at the end of the Struma motorway, too but there aren´t many red signs at all there.

You are talking about 2 different things...one is the yellow marker which is used when there is a detour(overriding the normal white one),and the yellow sign on which there are text. I suppose those mark temporary directions.

Hi all,

Motorway signs in Israel are blue. Most other intercity roads are green, as are motorway exit signs to lesser roads. All signs are in three languages (see the "Israeli motorways" thread for a detailed discussion of this issue)

It's interesting to see that they are all in English, Hebrew and Arabic.

Table of roadsign colours for various European Countries

This website http://www.geocities.com/marcelmonte...olors.htm#euc5 presents a very nice table of roadsign colours for various european countries. As well as signs on motorways it gives details of the colours of signs on other road classifications too.

Regards, Dave

Yes, about the signs being in Arabic too, I think this tells a lot about Israel and its values... too bad there are other kinds of people near its borders who don't share these values.

Not all on this side is true, in Bulgaria they mostly use E numbers AND they use latin alphabed, TOO, why is this wrong information there?

Its not that special actually, most Arabic countries have multilanguage signs too. Doesnt say poo about values.

Morocco uses blue signs mainly:



But we also have brown signs:

Although brown is only used on N-roads. Blue for Highways.

This is because we used to have green signs on all kinds of roads, and a few years ago we started to change them blue on motorways and expressways. So since then the new and renovated motorways get blue signs, and the green ones are used till they last. When they have to be replaced, they are replaced with blue ones. We just don't have the money to change all of them suddenly

According to a post by RoadUser in Israeli Highways:
Quote:
Following a court ruling at the beginning of this century, all intercity signs must be in Arabic. This is indeed the case - all junctions have Arabic signs, even if every sign is not in Arabic. It appears that if a sign does not have Arabic, then it is an old sign.

[...]

Inside towns, the ruling stipulated that towns with large Arab populations must have Arabic signs. The ruling mostly affected mixed towns such as Ramle, Lod (Lydda), and Tel Aviv. Jerusalem and Haifa have always had Arabic signs.

One other connected issue - apparently the new terminal at Ben Gurion Airport originally had no signs in Arabic. This was subsequently changed following protests.

HERE IN MEXICO, THE STANDARD IS "MULTI-COLOUR HIGHWAY SIGNS", BUT MOST ARE GREEN. I PREFER BLUE ONES THOUGH.

THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF SOME HIGHWAY SIGNS IN THE CITY OF MONTERREY, NUEVO LEON (I got them from skyscrapercity)

THE FIRST ONE IS AN EXAMPLE OF A WHITE HIGHWAY SIGN

THIS ONE IS EXAMPLE OF A BROWN HIGWAY SIGN

AND THIS ONE IS AN EXAMPLE OF BLUE HIGHWAY SIGNS, ALTHOUGH THEY ARE HARD TO SEE BECAUSE THEY ARE IN THE BACKGROUND, AND THE MOST VISIBLE ONE IS AT THE LOWER RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE PICTURE. THE PLACE IT WAS TAKEN IS OF AVENIDA CONSTITUCION.

CONFUSING, ISN'T IT? WELL AT LEAST FOR FOREIGNERS IT IS. I'VE ALSO SEEN ORANGE AND YELLOW ONES

Well, you guys just made me read the entire thread from start to end.

Whoever did the world map did get South Africa correct - blue signs on freeways, green just about everywhere else. There are a few exceptions: tourism related signs are brown, a few information related signs are white (such as town names, river crossings - that kind of thing), and ALL temporary signs (such as the sort you'll see when road construction is going on) are black on yellow.

Many of you have probably seen our signage before; for those who haven't, I'll dig some photos up when I get some time to do that.
